- Interpersonal communication, fear of missing out, the joy of missing out
Face-to-face interpersonal communication is the most effective of all communication types. Due to the Covid-19 outbreak in 2020, Indonesians have been forced to communicate online. The outbreak was followed up by Large-Scale Social Restrictions (PSBB). The increasing use of Instagram due to the communication crisis give possible symptoms of Fear of Missing Out (FoMO). In addition, they may also experience Joy of Missing Out (JoMO) caused by the long-time disconnection of face-to-face communication. This research aims to determine the symptoms of FoMO and JoMO among active millennial Instagram users at 2020 PSBB in Jakarta and analyze the causes with Fundamental Interpersonal Relations Orientation (FIRO), namely the three basic needs of interpersonal communication; inclusion, control, and affection. This research uses the FIRO Theory and approaches in the phenomenological method. The results are; millennial Instagram users do have symptoms of FoMO and JoMO during PSBB; from the three needs of interpersonal communication, what causes individuals to experience FoMO and JoMO is affection; FoMO with over personal affection is caused by fear of losing relationships and affection; JoMO with the same affection (over personal) focuses on maintaining relationships in real life, and JoMO with interpersonal affection is caused by the distrust in interactions.
