Abstract

The 20th century advancement of technology created a startling effect: for the first time ever, the production of information surpassed our ability to process it. This project investigates the rise of the information society and the consequences of information overload. Search engines are introduced as tools that mitigate information overload by allowing selective retrieval of targeted data. This project aims to educate internet users on how to effectively use Google to acquire their desired information.
