Internet 2010 in numbers
Saw a great post today on pingdom’s blog highlighting the explosive growth of the Internet in 2010:
What happened with the Internet in 2010?
How many websites were added? How many emails were sent? How many Internet users were there? This post will answer all of those questions and many, many more. If it’s stats you want, you’ve come to the right place.
We used a wide variety of sources from around the Web to put this post together. You can find the full list of source references at the bottom of the post if you’re interested. We here at Pingdom also did some additional calculations to get you even more numbers to chew on.
Prepare for a good kind of information overload.
What I love are the crazy numbers like 89% of all email was spam (262 billion messages), 25billion tweets sent & 20million Facebook apps installed a day. 2011 will be another one for the record books, no doubt!
