Keywords:social development, student nurse, smartphone
As the adaptation of the young to novel technologies is more rapid than people of other ages, it can be said that the use of mobile devices is more common among the young. The constant updating behavior of individuals in social networks has brought about a new behavioral disorder known as Fear of Missing Out (FoMO). This lead the individuals to checking their mobile phones or tablets as they have fears such as “Did I miss something?”, “Who shares anything now?”, or “Am I outside the topic of discussion?” and spending too much time on social networks. This study was carried out in order to assess the fear of missing out among university students. No sampling was performed and questionnaire form was implemented on 155 persons who volunteered to take part in the study. The 10-item introductory information form and the 10-item, 5-point Likert-type missing out scale were implemented on the participants
