Striving For Social Media Reduces the Ability to Filter Out Visual Distractors

This research examined how visual distraction is influenced by consumers’ striving for social media. In three laboratory experiments, we showed striving for social media – measured as craving for social media, situational social exclusion, and situational fear of missing out – decreased the ability to filter out visual distractions.
