Infobesity

Today on the news:

the newest risk to our youths health; Infobesity

How do they come up with it. Ok, it’s not even a new term but Infobesity means as much as constantly consuming enormous amounts of non-information. Through tv, pda’s, text messaging, Twitter, blog’s and multiple social networks like Hyves and Facebook young people constantly update themselves with information from their ‘network’ and by doing so run the risk of getting addicted to this information and overloading their mind. Short for: it makes them stupid.

Sigh… It must be a slow period for news broadcasters to pull this one of the shelf.
