fomo is an "educate and entertain" app built with the intention of revealing and educating users on the dark side of society's addiction to social media, by presenting brutally-honest representations of the features we've come to expect from our favorite apps along with why the developers build them this way, and how we as users are actually using them—whether we realize it or not. To submit a fomo-worthy post to the Hall of Fomo, simply tag it with @ourfomo and #fomofamous to get our attention! Features Fomo feed The fomo feed is meant to represent your favorite social-media "feeds", or in other words: views of people you know doing things without you. :) Feed items are revealed as either the REAL thing the posters are often seeking in making the post, OR the ridiculous thing the poster thinks their audience doesn't see right through. SoapBox The Soapbox represents the task of creating a new post (or, if we're honest... "broadcast") on social media. The text box prompts you with inspiring snippets that reveal the frame of mind many people clearly hold (perhaps subconsciously) just before posting on social media. It primarily highlights the societal trend of using social media to "broadcast" the majority of our lives—from our most trivial thoughts to our lived experiences—as if the majority of our thoughts are in need of "publishing" to be worthwhile, and as if our experiences aren't personally valuable unless others know we are having them. Triggers We decided to name this one exactly how the behavior-modification specialists working at the social-media companies refer to them—just so there wasn't anything lost in translation. Triggers are meant to represent the notification lists common to social media, finally framed as what they are: mechanisms carefully tuned to compete for your attention and build habits around using the developers' app. We think you'll enjoy some of the examples of notifications we WISH we got from our social media apps, too.

    This is by far the BEST social media app I’ve come across. Don’t miss out. Seriously, you’re missing out. This is amazing.
  • Who’s missing out? You!

    Haha so glad I got the scoop from the founders that this is launching and that I am in on it before any of you. I’ll be sharing from the super lit parties I throw every night. Make sure to validate me lots so that I feel really good about myself!

    Finally!! I was getting so tired of all the altruism and deep posts on my insta. Now I can really see what’s up with the people I barely care about. Well played FOMO, well played.

    I’ve been driving myself crazy trying to find the best place to share all of my FOMO-worthy pics to make everyone else like me more. This is it. I finally have found a home on social media. I’m gonna broadcast the crap out of my Burn this year #YoureMissingOut #MyLifeIsMoreFun Can’t wait to see what the next expansion for FOMO is!

    Some call it destiny. Others call it destiny. I call it destiny. I was finishing brunch with Brenda and Chad. They had the French toast. Interesting choice. I was on my way to the spa for a facial. Then I heard that Greg had a new baby. Not to be outdone, I borrowed my sister’s baby for the day. That night, I ate an ice cube for dinner. Anyway, thanks for listening.
