Psychometric Scales

Fear of Missing Out Scale (FoMOS)

Although it is not an entirely new challenge to self-regulation, FoMO may be more prevalent now that social media provides so many avenues for frictionless social interactions over the internet. The FoMOS is the first and only empirically validated psychometric instrument to measure the FoMO phenomenon.
Social Media Engagement Questionnaire (SMEQ)

Numerous research studies indicate that people are not great at estimating the extent to which they use social media. As these interactions move inexorably on to mobile platforms the challenge of quantifying levels of personal use will become increasingly complex. The SMEQ provides a solution to this problem, measuring the extent to which people’s key daily activities tend to involve social media.
