You’ll never believe how much happens on the internet EVERY minute

Over 7.5 billion people live on this planet and over half of them use the internet! According to Domo, a computer software company based in Utah, 3.7 billion people surf the web. But what do we do when we’re online?

Domo specializes in creating visual representations of data for businesses. They recently released the “Data Never Sleeps 5.0” infographic that explains how much data is generated on the internet every single minute.

It’s astounding just how much content we collectively consume in only 60 seconds. Americans alone use over 2 million GBs of data per minute. Take a look at the picture to see how many spam emails are sent, how many people are watching YouTube videos, and so much more.
