Visualizing What Happens In An Internet Minute In 2018

<p><strong>In your everyday life, a minute might not seem like much.</strong></p>

<p>But, <a href="">as Visual Capitalist's Jeff Desjardins notes,</a> <strong>when it comes to the vast scale of the internet, a minute of time goes much further than you ever could have imagined.</strong> That’s because the internet has a degree of scale that our linear human brains are unaccustomed to operating on.</p>

<h3><u><strong>An internet minute in 2018</strong></u></h3>

<p>Today’s infographic is from Lori Lewis and Chadd Callahan of <a href="">Cumulus Media</a>, and it shows the activity taking place on various platforms such as Facebook or Google in each 60 second span.</p>

<p>It really helps put an internet minute in perspective.</p>

<h3><u><strong>Just a minute, please</strong></u></h3>

<p>The numbers for these services are so enormous that they can only be shown using the 60 second time scale.</p>

<p>Any bigger, and our brains can’t even process these massive quantities in any useful capacity. Here are just a few key numbers scaled to a monthly basis, for fun:</p>

<p>42,033,600,000 Facebook logins</p>

<p>159,840,000,000 Google searches</p>

<p>1,641,600,000,000 WhatsApp messages sent</p>

<p>8,078,400,000,000 emails sent</p>

<p>On an annualized basis, the data becomes even more ridiculous, with something close to 100 trillion emails sent. (No wonder it’s so hard to get to inbox zero!)</p>

<h3><u><strong>Previous minutes</strong></u></h3>

<p>If the internet minute visualization looks familiar, that’s because it gets updated and re-released every year using the latest data available. See below for a direct comparison of the last two years:</p>

<p><strong>The biggest and most noticeable jump comes in Netflix hours watched – a number which we believe may be too good to be true. </strong>While we have not seen the exact methodology of these calculations, we do know that in December it was announced by Netflix that users were watching approximately <a href="">140 million hours</a> per day. This works out to roughly 100,000 hours per minute according to our math, which is still mind-boggling.</p>
