march 2013 by allaboutgeorge» Blog Archive » FOMO and Social Media
FOMO —Fear of Missing Out— is a great motivator of human behavior, and I think a crucial key to understanding social software, and why it works the way it does. Many people have studied the game mechanics that keep people collecting things (points, trophies, check-ins, mayorships, kudos). Others have studied how the neurochemistry that keeps us checking Facebook every five minutes is similar to the neurochemistry fueling addiction. Social media has made us even more aware of the things we are missing out on. You’re home alone, but watching your friends status updates tell of a great party happening somewhere. You are aware of more parties than ever before. And, like gym memberships, adding Bergman movies to your Netflix queue and piling up unread copies of the New Yorker, watching these feeds gives you a sense that you’re participating, not missing out, even when you are.

South by Southwest Interactive - SXSW 2011 Analysis - Popular Mechanics
Perhaps the greatest realization of this window into the future, though, is that for all the criticism modern gadgets and technology get for serving as half-hearted simulacrums for real-life social interaction, a fully wired world may just be the most social (and fun) one imaginable. That is, until our phone batteries die.

Surfer Blood Is Between Buzz and Break at South by Southwest -
Ms. Brownstein offered her advice for surviving the yearlong Internet hype machine, which will continue to churn long after the bands of South by Southwest leave Austin.

“Yes, the Internet obviously foments a lot of buzz and chatter,” she said, “but there’s nothing more exciting than having a friend tell you that they saw a great show by a great band and that you should check it out. So hopefully by the time you’re on your 10th show, every single person that wants to see you will see you and go back to their towns across America and the world and preach about Surfer Blood. That’s the only way to keep a band on your radar.”

“The blogs,” she added, “will already be on to something new.”
