This is what is happening on the internet in any given second
At any given moment there are, quite literally, billions of people online. Approximately 46.1 percent of the world's population has access to the internet, which equates to about 3.4 billion people.
These astronomical numbers lead to the question: what exactly are these people doing online?
Well, fortunately, there are people who have figured it out.
Internet Live Stats is the go-to source for all stats from the world wide web. They recently released a live map that shows just how much activity is happening around the world, down to the very second.
They found more than two million emails are sent every second. Out of those emails, 67 percent of them are spam, which is explains your rapidly expanding junk mail folder.
Every second, more than 54,000 Google searches are conducted, more than 125,000 YouTube videos are watched and around 7,000 tweets are sent.
In that same time span, 729 photos are uploaded to Instagram.
A new study shows that one-fifth of all Americans reported they are online "almost constantly." Of course, young adults make up the largest percentage of that. Roughly 50 percent of them log on several times per day!
While these numbers may make it seem that everybody is online, remember, there are still 4 billion people without access to the internet.
