Infomania: 资讯癖 (zī xùn pì)

Infomania is the debilitating state of information overload, caused by the combination of a backlog of information to process, and continuous interruptions from technologies like phones, instant messaging, and e-mail. 

“资讯癖”(zī xùn pì)指的是信息超载的超负荷状态,是由于需要处理大量的多种信息导致的,并受到手机、即时通讯及电邮等信息科技的不断打扰。

It is also understood as distraction caused by the urge to check e-mail, text messaging and other sources of information, which causes the person to show symptoms to neglect other, often more important things—duties, family, etc. 


For instance, a typical symptom of infomania is that of checking e-mail frequently during vacation.
