Abstract: Term information appears in everyday conversations and media, as well as in numerous references. It is assumed that term information is unambiguous and that those who use it clearly understand its meaning. This paper deals with this subject with an attempt to give one interpretation of the term information. Information, as the phenomenon with numerous implications in the process of communication, is also described in this paper. This, above all, refers to the ways in which the amount of information is being quantified, the existence and influence of the primary information barriers, and several crucial questions concerning the information capacity in different kinds of media.

Keywords: information processes; media; information barriers; information capacity; information quality; communications.
