Fear

Of

Missing

Out

It’s one of the reasons why social media is so popular. Nobody wants to miss anything, EVER. And, in some circles, nothing important happens unless it’s on social media.

So, this week we’re wondering, what good can come of FOMO? (Yes, there is good to be had)

Playing on societal voyeurism, the marketing industry relies on FOMO to generate interest and increased engagement.

But in education, on average, students comprehend 80% of concepts taught through experiential learning opportunities, versus 20% from aural and 10% from written instruction.

With this in mind, FOMO emphasizes the relative importance of experiences; of learning by doing, of emotional connectivity’s strength, and–once that nagging twinge of jealousy subsides—the value of being present.

There’s no shame in using FOMO as a motivator.

Not to coerce you into celebrating Venture Café Miami’s 1st Birthday or anything like that. Rather, as a reminder of what great connection experiences you overlook when you miss the #ThursdayGathering.

Don’t take my word for it. Come see for yourself.

Cheers,

Venture Café Miami
