I just found out that I've been misinterpreting F.O.M.O.

I first heard of the "Fear of missing out" in relation to people who are surfing the internet, and thought, "That's me exactly, I'm so afraid to be away from the internet in case there's something really funny or fun being posted in my usual surfing spots, or maybe in nifty ones I just haven't found yet. I sure don't want to miss out on content!" And now I find out it has to do with people looking at other people on social media and feeling sad because other people look like they have cooler lives. So it means you might actually consider abandoning the internet to go do other things?! Well, I called that one all wrong, it looks like.

Is there a name/acronym for "Fear of missing out on internet content"?
