Today, the impact of the Internet on everyday life is so great that it’s almost too easy to take its influence and efficacy for granted. While everyone knows how to “go live” on Facebook or compare prices of their favorite products on leading eCommerce portals. What most people don’t know, however, is that the first website in the world — a simple text page with hyperlinked words to other pages — was published more than two decades ago by British engineer, Sir Tim Berners-Lee. Did you also know that there are approximately 3.26 billion Internet users in the world today, of which Asia accounts for nearly 50% of that total?
If the Internet’s constant growth and influence on billions of lives across the world is a source of amazement and astonishment to you, then you should definitely take a look at the infographic developed by HostingFacts.com. It’s a treasure trove of information for any Internet lover!
From the total number of blog posts that are published every day, to the most expensive domain name ever sold; from the Internet’s contribution to global retail sales to the country with the highest Internet penetration, you name it and it’s all right here!
Enjoy! (And I hope you’re not in a rush to be anywhere).
