in the know.

This is a follow up to my post about social media Generation of “Likes.”

I had a conversation with one of my friends & she literally hit the nail on the head. I had to share.

She mentioned the Fear of Missing Out “FOMO” part of the post & for her it isn’t necessarily that she needs to BE there (‘there’ being any variety of locations) but she feels the need to keep up & be “in the know.” So true, right?

I actually think this makes much more sense than Fear of Missing Out – it’s the Fear of Not Knowing. You don’t want someone else to tell you first.

I LIKE keeping up.  I really didn’t like not being on Instagram the other week. It truly gave me a bit of anxiety (sad but true). Not for the fact that I want to be at those places, I’m content with what I’m doing, but that I need to keep up. I want to KNOW what everyone’s up to (hello, Mean Girls).

Anyways, nothing new to report I wanted to share my “ah ha!” moment.

Keep on keepin’ on 🙂

Xx,

Ashley
