FOMO Survival Kit Helps Millennials Cope With Social Anxieties
The satirical product is meant to be a playful diversion for people who feel like they are missing out
FOMO was added as a word to the Oxford English Dictionary in 2013. Defined by said dictionary as “anxiety that an exciting or interesting event may currently be happening elsewhere, often aroused by posts seen on social media.” According to a recent study done by Eventbrite, 69 percent of millennials experience FOMO when they can’t attend something that their family or friends are going to. To combat this sometimes overwhelming feeling ECAL student Lara Défayes created the FOMO Survival Kit, a satirical piece of product art.
