This Social Media 'FOMO' infographic details the ways in which the web has the power to affect people's real-life decisions.

Discussing 'FOMO' specifically, an acronym meaning "fear of missing out," this is an appropriately light-hearted chart detailing the influence of social media in an slightly unscientific way. Breaking social media users into demographic groups, the chart details the way in which social media 'FOMO' affects various users. While younger people seem to experience stronger fear of missing out than older individuals, it seems no one is immune to this inescapable complex.

Funny, interesting and looking at social media in a whole new light, this chart puts together somewhat silly statistics for a fun and unexpectedly comprehensive read.
