Abstract:The internet has become crucial to the everyday life of most people and organisations. The amount of information accessible via the internet is rapidly increasing, so it becomes more and more difficult to find meaningful and useful Information. Information that is not meaningful to the receiver can be referred to as information waste. This paper examines different forms of information waste and how they can be identified. A special focus is laid on information that is subjectively useful to the receiver. Various tools for detecting different forms of information waste are drawn from literature and some new tools are added. The elaborated tools and criteria are compared to the ones used by the social media websites Facebook and student.world in order to identify a potential solution to information waste on the pragmatic layer.
