FOBO is new FOMO, says Facebook research

Excerpt from this article:

‘Fear of being offline’ is the new ‘fear of missing out’ for millennials, according to the first outputs from Facebook’s new insight unit, Facebook IQ.

According to the research, 75% of millennials refuse to leave the house without their phone… young people see no distinction between their online and offline lives. Mobile is also the “first screen”: nine out of 10 young people surveyed owned a smartphone, but the least-used function, according to the research, is to make a phone call.
