Ever wondered how much data is transferred through the internet every second? Imagine the thousands of people uploading a picture on Facebook right NOW. The millions of WhatsApp texts being this moment. The hours of Youtube videos being watched this minute. Well, it first it seems too wild to be true, but in the amount of time you took to read this paragraph, the internet has transferred over 270 million GB of data. Yeah. 12 seconds to 270 million. The internet is one heck of an animal.
Recently I stumbled upon (literally, using StumbleUpon) this website that simply keeps track of this data live. Simple, mind blowing stats that are incomprehensible on first glance. And without further due, I present to you Pennystocks.la. Don’t visit it just yet, see the pictures below first:
See? I was equally astounded looking at those numbers the first time. Now look at this:
30 seconds is a lot of time on the internet. And its even more when it come to how much companies earn in those few moments. The internet values time like humans value their lives.
Keeping it simple today: no long post, just great numbers. Hope you sleep today as a proud citizen of the ever-growing internet :)
