Information Explosion

Today's information environment is more than ever saturated with ever-present, emotional, and flashy messages and attention-grabbing technologies and techniques. Information professionals wonder how to respond to this situation. How can they fulfil their task of providing citizens with the information that is relevant?

Overarching question is: How do new technologies (immersive, personalized, omnipresent, and invasive) and formatting techniques (emotional, personal, fast-paced) affect the public in terms of how they deal with this ínformation overload', and how does this affect their attitudes towards for instance politics?
