What happens in 60 seconds on the internet?
2 million Google searches, 72 hours of video on YouTube and 278,000 tweets apparently
Tuesday 30 July 2013
Certain measurements of time seem to bend reality - the microwave minute for example, or the one-more-minute in bed. And now the internet minute has been revealed, with an infographic detailing some of the activities that happen in 60 seconds of web time.
72 hours of video uploaded to YouTube a minute is pretty staggering, as is 2 million Google searches. THe website creation 'rate' (571/minute) is also good, though you do wonder how many sites go 'down' (or simply out of use) in the same time.
Also interesting to see how quickly Snapchat has gained on 'rival' (of sorts), Instagram. The former apparently has 104,000 photos shared each minute, with the latter clearing 108,000 in the same time. See below for the full graphic:
