Abstract

As consumers of information, we live in unprecedented times, especially given the centrality of the Internet in our daily lives. We have rapid access to a staggering amount of information from diverse information sources. This is in sharp contrast to previous generations that had to physically seek out information from a relatively narrow set of source types to be informed about different topics (e.g., reading an excerpt from an encyclopedia at a library to learn about a historical event, purchasing a newspaper from a local store to keep up with recent news), or perhaps rely on the evening news to stay informed.
