Can Featuring Social Media Photographs of In-Store Retail Events Cause Fomo?

Retailers create in-store promotional events to build brand community. Will posting event photos elicit FOMO and harm brand loyalty?

However, for less brand-connected consumers, event photos increase NPS scores, while for more connected consumers, merchandise photos increase NPS scores.
