Surprising Stats: An Average Day on the Internet

Just how big is the internet? Mind-bogglingly big.

Online Education (via The Presurfer ) has produced a fascinating graphic about an average day on the internet. Among the stunning statistics:

• Over 210 billon emails are sent out every day — the equivalent of more than a whole year’s worth of regular mail in the U.S.

• Bloggers post 900,000 new articles every day — enough to fill The New York Times for 19 years.

• 700,000 new members are added to Facebook every day — approximately equivalent to the population of Guyana.

• Three million images are uploaded to Flickr everyday — enough images to fill a 375,000-page photo album.

Who would have imagined this just a few years ago?
