ABSTRACT

The internet users, especially social media users are increasing in the last decade. This intensive using of social media induces behavioral changes of its users. One of the phenomena emerging is the fear of missing out. Personality has different effect on the rising fear. This research is aimed to recognize the relation between personality traits on fear of missing out on students.  This study involved 643 students. The research data were collected by Big Five Inventory scale. The fear of missing out scale is modified from the previous research (Hato, 2013 and Przybylski, 2013). The data were analyzed by multiple regression using statistic software. The analysis resulted in r= 0,248 with significance or p= 0,000, therefore hypothesis stating that there is a relation between the big five personality traits and fear of missing out about social media is accepted. The research results show that extraversion and agreeableness have positive correlation to fear of missing out. While neuroticism has negative correlation and conscientiousness doesn’t correlate to fear of missing out.
