That's OK in the general case.

But when a friend tells you too many embarrassing details about his or her life, especially intimate, personal details, you can say "Too much information!" or even just "TMI!"


Here's a definition of "TMI" from Dictionary.com:

TMI: too much information: used as a response to an inappropriate disclosure of personal information, or as a reaction to an overload of information: Her pregnancy updates are TMI.

Both are acceptable. I think I would use "information overload" in most contexts.
