A snapshot of one minute on the internet today and in 2012 Quartz


One reason the internet minute is now richer is simply that there are more people online (Excel file). The proportion of the global population using the internet rose three percentage points to 38.8% this year. More significantly, average global broadband speeds are up 17% on last year. Together, those two things mean that more people than ever are searching, uploading, networking and buying. As Google and Facebook continue their campaigns to bring the rest of the world online, expect the internet minute to get denser—and the revenues of the world’s biggest internet businesses to grow larger.

What's striking is that Facebook and LinkedIn don't seem that much bigger than a year ago.

Whereas Twitter (3x the tweets), Google (2x the searches), Amazon (40% more revenue), and YouTube (3x the videos) seem a lot bigger than a year ago.

Another reason Twitter is under valued! The hockey stick is forming.

what is PW 2012 vs 2013?

Ha. Still not at the scale of anything significant in a given minute. We have a long way to go.
