Each minute of your time awake or asleep, there are billions of people on the Internet doing their things. Yes, literally billions each minute, each second of the day, none-stop. And each year this number only increases to the absolute extremes, never predicted, never seen on such scale.
The world counts in January 2018 7,593,000,000 people, or with other words, 7 billion and about 593 million people. From those people, 55% live in cities. From those almost 7.6 billion people, about 4 billion (53%) people have Internet access, which is 7% up from 2017! From those people connected to the Internet, 3.196 billion people (42%) using the social media, which is an increase of 13% from 2017. Throughout the world, 5.135 billion people (68%) are using mobile phones, a growth of 4% with 2017. From those mobile phone users, 2.958 billion people (39%) are using the social media.
And then each minute, 3.3 million posts in Facebook, 150,000 emails are sent, 500 hours of YouTube videos uploaded, 29 million messages sent with WhatsApp, 1,440 posts are posted at WordPress websites, 448,800 tweets tweeted, 65,972 photos are uploaded to InstaGram and 3.8 million searches are performed in Google search engine. It’s powerful.
