Nomophobia

I’m not sure how many of them are aware of this, but just saw this yesterday on V [I]Q. The question was :

What is nomophobia(even MS Word is showing it in red saying it needs a spell check ;-))?

And people came up with weird answers …

  • No More Phobia
  • Fear of Numbers
  • A type of computer virus..
The answer is, It is the fear of being out of mobile phone contact - and it's the plague of our 24/7 age.
