Internet Trends

Gary Pattillo, reference librarian at UNC-Chapel Hill notes some Internet trends I found remarkable in his June 2013 Fast FActs from C&RL News.

2.4 billion Internet users, average 8% annual growth rate

Global digital info created/share grew 9 times in five years to nearly 2 zettabytes (2 trillioin gigabytes) as of 2011.

500 million plus phots are uploaded and shared every day.

100 hours of video are uploaded per minute to YouTube.
