532 Million Status Updates, 864,000 Hours of Video: A Typical Day on the Internet (Infographic)
According to information I found on the Internet, back in 1993 the Internet carried only 1% of all information from two-way telecommunication. By 2007, more than 97% of that information was flowing through the Interwebs.
So what exactly does that translate to in real numbers? Since the Internet has proven to not only be the go-to choice for communication and information, but is also one of the fastest ways to become a billionaire, the guys over at MBA Online poured through the research to find out what we do on the InterGoogles on a typical day.
And the numbers are staggering. In 24 hours we consume enough information to fill 168 million DVDs, send enough emails to keep the post office busy for 2 years, write enough blog posts to fill Time magazine for 770 years, and upload 98 years worth of videos. Every. Single. Day. It’s a miracle we have enough time to do actual work.
