In Just 60 Seconds….


A lot happens in 60 seconds.

As you know by now, the Webman loves infographics.  I was introduced to this concept many years ago, through the work of Edward Tufte, an original infographer.  http://www.edwardtufte.com/tufte/

The world of infographics has exploded as the amount of new information has exploded.  Today I found a terrific infographic that defines what happens in our world today in 60 seconds.  I will cite just a few of the most interesting facts for you.

Every 60 seconds this happens:

  • 13,000 iPhone applications are downloaded
  • 98,000 tweets are sent
  • 6,600 new pictures are uploaded to Flickr
  • 695,000 statuses are updated on Facebook
  • 168,000,000 e-mails are sent
  • 694,445 search queries happen on Google
  • 600+ new videos are uploaded to You Tube
  • 1,820 terabytes of data are created
  • 11,000,000 conversations are happening on instant messenger
  • Google makes $75,000  in revenue
  • 925 iPhone 4S’s are sold
  • 81 iPads are sold
  • 18 Kindle Fires are sold

Here is the link to the infographic.  Enjoy!
