[Infographic] What Happens in an Internet Minute?


We are all aware that there are billions of people using the internet every day, but what is interesting about this infographic, is which websites are generating huge amounts of traffic. Intel has done a great job of breaking down the information. For example, 640,000 GB of global IP data is transferred every minute.  Not sure what that means? Me either, until I did some research. Most of the traffic is related to photography and movie-sharing services, as Flickr (20 million photo’s viewed), Facebook (6 million Facebook views and 277,000 log ins) and YouTube (1.3 million video views and 30 hours worth of videos are uploaded.)

Additionally, there are 204 million emails sent each minute. Google is recording more than 2 million search queries in 60 seconds. Twitter processes 100,000 new tweets and 320 new Twitter accounts are created. That’s more than five new Twitter users per second. That’s why creating specific lists will help with all the noise in your news feed and you can read the tweets from the people you want. Here’s a previous post to show you how to create a list on Twitter. Sorry, I digress.

Other interesting numbers from Intel’s report reveal that 61,141 hours worth of music are listened on Pandora. My personal favorite social media site, LinkedIn, which generates 100 new accounts in a minute. Unfortunately with the good, comes the bad. Sadly, it appears that 135 botnet infections occur simultaneously with 20 people becoming identity theft victims. Time to invest in some solid anti-virus software if you haven’t already.

Intel expects mobile gadget sales, such as smartphones and tablets, to continue to rise, thus the data transferred in a minute will keep on rising. More than 1,300 new people buy a mobile device each minute, while 47,000 app downloads are being recorded at the same time. Intel says the number of networked devices out there is equal to the world’s population and is expected to double the world’s population by 2015. Crazy. I’m wondering what this means for our future.

Totally Rad Retro Video’s of Facebook, Twitter, Google, Pinterest, DrawSomething and Angry Birds.


As requested, more flashback videos created by Squirrel Monkey. They are creating some funny videos showing how the most popular technology would have looked in the 80’s and 90’s—from the re-creation of the dial-up Facebook instructional video to an amazing rendition of Google and Twitter in BBS mode. Also, an 8-bit sensibility to spoof popular apps like Angry Birds and DrawSomething. If you’re wondering where LinkedIn is, you can find the 80’s rendition in an earlier blog post here.

Check them all out:

Facebook in the 1990’s.

Twitter in the 1980’s. 

Google in the 1980’s. 

If Angry Birds Were a Home Computer Game in the 1980’s.

LinkedIn 1980’s Flashback Video


This hilarious video was created by Squirrel-Monkey. It conceptualizes what LinkedIn would look like if it would have been invented in the ’80s. Rather than quickly signing up and getting started, you would need to print and fill out the membership form to receive the “LinkedIn CD-ROM.”

It is hard to imagine what life would be like if we still lived in the 80’s. Maybe a bit more personal? This is something to show the kids.
