What Happens On the Internet Every 60 Seconds?

By

Got a minute? If you do, stop and think about it – in the course of one day, how many social sites do you use? I was taken aback by the results when I pondered this thought – YouTube, Facebook, LinkedIn, Hootsuite, Pandora and Twitter. That sure is a lot of Internet interaction. Now, have you ever wondered just what happens over the Internet in the course of that one, single minute? The answer is more than you ever thought possible.

It’s so easy to track the Internet when given large gaps of time – even one day (24 hours) is simple to do in real-time. But crunch that down to a mere 60 seconds (or double the time it took for you to read this article so far) and it seems almost impossible to track just what the Internet is up to.

But alas, a new infographic from MediaBistro.com breaks it down for us, and as it turns out, we’re all one single atom of an alarmingly huge Internet entity.

So what happens every minute on the Internet?

  • 204 million e-mails are sent
  • $83,000 in sales are made on Amazon (enough to pay the average post-grad’s tuition loans in full) 
  • 20 million photos are viewed on Flickr (or two and-a-half times the population of New York City)
  • 100,000 new tweets are published (or almost the entire population of Hartford, CT)
  • 277,000 people login to Facebook
  • Two million search queries are made on Google (or how many babies are born every six months)
  • 30 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube – yes, hours. That’s a lot of Harlem Shake videos

And this is only a sampling. Also included in the infographic is that six new Wikipedia articles are published every minute, 1,300 new mobile users are gained and 61,141 hours of music are listened to on Pandora.

Check out the infographic below to see where you fit in social media by the minute:
