I work in a digital newsroom as the Social Media Editor. I stalk people on Facebook, I cannot ever miss a trending hashtag on Twitter, I have memorized the names of the famous Redditors in India and I spend half my day watching YouTube videos. This is my job. It also means I am almost always online. I wake up in the middle of the night to breaking news alerts and to check Twitter timelines. The fear of missing out (FOMO) is real, and I know it.

There used to be a time when I preferred staying in luxurious hotels or resorts while on vacation. The hotels did great and still do fine, but I wanted some more flexibility. Those rigid check-in and check-out times didn't always gel well with my travel plans.
