On the world wide web, things can move at a lightning-fast pace. In just a minute, you can probably read through and compose quite a few tweets and look at dozens of Facebook photos.
You may have heard of the internet. It’s kind of a big deal.
How big? Well, stuff happens. Quite a lot of stuff, in fact. So much stuff, actually, that even when you break it down to what happens in just a single minute of the day, the numbers are overwhelming.
You need some examples? How about this: every 60 seconds of every day, 278,000 tweets are sent on Twitter, 11 thousand searches are made on LinkedIn and 1.8 million Likes are generated on Facebook.
Not impressed? What if I told you that in just one minute, 104,000 photos are shared on Snapchat, 15 thousand tracks are downloaded on iTunes and $83,000 of sales are made on Amazon.
You need more? You got it. In sixty seconds, users spend 1.4 million minutes connecting on Skype, upload a mind-boggling 72 hours of video to YouTube and exchange an incredible 204 million emails.
