Information is also only useful if it helps you make a decision.

Conclusion

In the world of smartphones, all types of data flood our screens and fight for our attention. But how much of this data do we use to make our day to day decisions? If we aren't using it to make decisions then is it really worth our time?

If you can't do anything with the data, it will never be information.

If it's not helping you make decisions it's probably not worth your time either.
