What Happens in an Internet Minute [Infographic]

This week’s infographic What happens in an Internet minute is brought to you by Intel via Tim Peter.

What makes this infographic interesting for ecommerce pros is many of these online properties have become entrenched in the daily lives of consumers and offer businesses marketing channels where the eyeballs and attention are.

What I find most interesting is how it appears that for every 2 emails sent, one Youtube video is viewed, and how by 2015, the device-to-human ratio will be 2:1.

  1. The most interesting statistic for me was the 6 wikipedia articles added every minute!

  2. This is cool, thanks. Google and YouTube seem to be at the top, although I’ll bet the average amount of Facebook messages a minute is incredibly high. Facebook are going to reach a point eventually where the world’s population is running out and they can’t exapnd anymore! Maybe they’ll have to make ventures into space to contact aliens, although there’s the lucrative Chinese population to tap into yet. If the Chinese government allow it, of course. YouTube and Google are also banned in the latter, along with Wikipedia. That’s an amazing proportion of the world’s population cut off from major websites.

    “Staggering” doesn’t even begin to describe this amount of bandwidth/data. If this is essentially going to double in the next 2 years, imagine how things will look in 20 years. It’s growing exponentially, not linearly!

  4. Rich Beaumont says:

    Is it not 200 emails sent for every youtube view?

  5. Josh says:

    What a great infographic. It doesn’t surprise me how close the numbers are between Google and Facebook. I wonder what the ratio of those Google search queries ends in general search or converted sales?

    Thanks again

    Thanks for picking this up, Linda. And, yes, the data is mind-blowing. And as @Bill points out above, the growth is even more amazing. Again, thanks for sharing!

  8. When I look at the infographic, the area that really interest me is the YouTube uploads. You see, I have two children, a 14 year old son and a 12 year old daughter and both are on YouTube constantly. Whether its is to watch the next music video, learn how to apply makeup or figure out how to do a Geometry problem they are getting this information through YouTube. This is not watching Television, this is tapping into exactly what they want to watch and what they want to learn. Just imagine what their generation is going to do 10 years from now. They are learning at a much faster pace that the generations that came before them.

    Thank you both Tim and Linda.
