Posted on January 16, 2011

Pingdom, one of the Internet’s premiere monitoring services on the web has released a set of figured describing Internet activity over the past year. Here are some of the highlights.

Think you send a lot of emails, the make up a small portion of the 207 trillion sent in 2010 (unfortunately almost 90% of which are spam). In 2010, 21.4 million new web sites were adding to the total of 255 billion. There are now 1.97 billion individual Internet users, most of them (822 million) located in Asia.

Needless to say Social Media has never been more popular. Twitter counted 25 billion tweets from its 175 million users. Facebook added 250 million users – now boasting 600 million total accounting for more than 1/4 of all Internet users. YouTube videos are watched 2 billion times daily with 35 hours of video uploaded every minute.
