Scientists study the mediating role of ‘FoMO’ given the trend towards ‘problematic smartphone use’ among adolescents

Researcher at the Department of Social Psychology of the University of Malaga Christiane Arrivillaga has participated in an international study conducted at the University of Toledo that aims to analyze how emotion dysregulation and FoMO—that is, the fear of missing out—together with a need to stay online to know what other people are doing, serve as factors to predict the possible problematic smartphone use among young people.
