The Internet is an amazing place that gets both better and worse every minute. The web is advancing at a rapid rate, with newly created content generating massive amounts of traffic for an audience that’s also steadily increasing.
In 2016, there are 3.4 billion people online, and companies including Google and Facebook want to connect even more people to the web.
One Minute On The Internet in 2016
Take a look at this awesome infographic from at Excelacom which has summarized all the things that happen in one minute on the internet.
Here are the full stats on what happens every internet minute:
- 701,389 logins on Facebook
- 69,444 hours watched on Netflix
- 150 million emails sent
- 1,389 Uber rides
- 527,760 photos shared on Snapchat
- 51,000 app downloads on Apple’s App Store
- $203,596 in sales on Amazon.com
- 120+ new Linkedin accounts
- 347,222 tweets on Twitter
- 28,194 new posts to Instagram
- 38,052 hours of music listened to on Spotify
- 1.04 million vine loops
- 2.4 million search queries on Google
- 972,222 Tinder swipes
- 2.78 million video views on Youtube
- 20.8 million messages on WhatsApp
That’s a lot of data every minute, and this volume of information is part of the reason that these same companies are prioritizing the ability to process and interpret big data more than ever before.
And many of those numbers have grown significantly over the past year. Uber saw 695 more rides booked per minute in 2016 over 2015 — a 100% year-over-year increase, and Amazon sales rose 70% per minute, by $83,836, to $203,596. Tinder is also growing like crazy. In just one minute, more potential suitors are swiped on Tinder than the number of people logging into Facebook.
And here’s one you might not guess — more YouTube videos are viewed in one minute than Google search queries made.
