Before, there was a time when parents were concerned about children being obese, there was a lot of reports coming about saying obesity in children or health problems in children.

Nowadays, we are in the age of technology, also known as information explosion era. Just like obesity, which appeared to be a scary epidemic across children, we have “infobesity” today.

the condition of continually consuming large amounts of information, especially when this has a negative effect on a person’s well-being and ability to concentrate.

We live in a world in which information is king, and the days of waiting to receive it or leaving the house to find it are long gone. Too much information could cause loss of priority and attention, then we could feel distracted, nervous and even exhausted. Consequently, when information overload occurs, it is likely that a reduction in decision quality will occur.
