ABSTRACT
A symptom of the high-tech age, which is too much information for one person to absorb in a world of expanding digital technology. It primarily comes from the gigantic amount of content on the Internet, including search engine results, blogs and social media. Web pages bombard the senses with ads, and junk e-mail (spam) adds chaos. Combine the digital information with the traditional sources such as TV, magazines, newsletters and junk postal mail, and information overload is a fact of modern life in the developed world. See digital vacation.
