ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5

digital hoarding

Digital hoarding is when someone collects large amounts of digital information, such as videos, pictures, documents and files. It is like collecting, but everything you collect is in electronic form instead of physical form. Just like a hoarder would collect things like clothes and old newspapers, a digital hoarder will collect digital items like videos and pictures they find online. It can become a problem when so much digital content is collected that it becomes difficult to manage and access it easily.
