The State of the Internet 2011

State of the Internet 2011
Created by: Online Schools

The internet has evolved over the last few years, to become virtually irreplaceable in our lives. Can you even contemplate not being able to Google search, tweet or Facebook for a day? With mobile communication the internet goes with us wherever we choose to go, be it on top of a mountain, at work or just laying in bed. We are connected.
Estimates place the age of the internet around 25 years and 11 months. In that short span of time the internet has changed our lives, I believe for the good.  There are some amazing facts and numbers to ponder:

  • 35 hours of videos uploaded to YouTube every minute
  • Twitter  - 119 million tweets per day
  • Time spent on YouTube 5 hours and 50 minutes per month
  • Only 20% of Individuals in the developing world are online
Play around with this interactive infographic, provided by Online Schools and be amazed at just how the internet has changed our lives and will continue to.
