I don't think we have this case in Egypt but we have worse .. Moat teens nowadays don't sleep at night *like me for example* you find the most active hashtags at the middle of the night also youtubers post their videos around this time
So I think we're turning into night-owls persons soon

Hi,
I think FOMO is common in Poland, but also other countries. many particularly young people aren't able to live without the phone. Teenagers before going to bed are using phones till late, and then their organism cannot fall asleep. Such persons are then not get enough sleep and have a bad temper.

I don't think it is that common in the US, where I live. But yes, people access social media and social games a lot!

Yes, I agree with this study, because this phenomenon is very common in Mexico, and all the world

Yes,I think FOMO is common in my country and in fact it excist in every country,I think. However, I am not one of these people,but suprisingly I am always asleep in my class and you can find me yawning during the lesson a millions time. This happens even with I sleep 9 hours. Maybe this is because I sleep too much,but I am fed up with this. Although,sleep is my favourite part of my life :)
