They use social media for at more than 180 minutes every day. The number of participants was 246 people. Measurement of the research hypothesis using Pearson correlation. The results showed negative correlation between fear of missing out FOMO and subjective well-being among young adulthood (r = -0.179, p= 0.005, < 0.05). This indicates if FOMO increase, then young adults’ subjective well-being will be decrease, vice versa.
