A day in the Internet

Internet World Statistics  is one of my favorite web sites and the work done by these folks is amazing and valuable keeping us abreast of what is going on around the world in terms of the Internet.

These statistics are mind boggling.  They also put some clarity into otherwise meaningly huge numbers.  The following all occurs in a single day!


  • Enough data is transferred (downloaded) each day to fill 168 million DVD's!
  • 294 billion emails are sent each day!  It would take 2 years to process that much snail mail.
  • 2 million blog posts are written each day.  That would fill Time Magazine for 770 years.
  • 72 million unique people visit FaceBook each day.
  • 40 million people visit Twitter
  • 22 million people visit Linkedin
  • 20 million visit Google+
  • 17 million visit Pinterest
  • There are 532 million FaceBook status updates
  • 250 million photos are uploaded to Facebook
  • People watch 22 million hours of old TV Shows and movies on Netflix
  • 864,000 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube each day.
  • 18.7 million hours of music are streamed via Pandora
  • 1288 new apps are made available and 35 million are downloaded
  • There are more new iPhones sold each day than there are babies born in the world:
    • 378,000 iphones versus 371,000 babies born

If you could obtain one dollar from a fraction of these people you will have produced a huge revenue stream.  What are you doing to reach these people?
