The video is about the concept of FOMO, or the fear of missing out, which is the anxiety people feel when they believe something exciting is happening elsewhere and they are not part of it. FOMO is often triggered by social media posts, where people can instantly see what their friends are doing. While social media provides access to friends' activities, it can also lead to comparison and insecurity . The text suggests that quitting social media is not the only solution; instead, limiting screen time or taking breaks can help individuals focus on their own lives. It highlights that people's online presence is a curated highlight reel and not an accurate representation of their daily life. The text concludes that, in reality, people experience FOMO regardless of their online activities.
