What’s a few more bytes among friends?

Users of the internet generate on average 2.5 quintillion bytes of data each day, according to recent research by Domo. That’s a lot of zeros. Their report came up with this statistic having analysed publicly available data from a range of sources, including web measurement services like Internet Live Stats and news outlets like BuzzFeed.

Among the key insights were that on average, every minute:

  • The Weather Channel receives 18 million forecast requests.
  • YouTube users watch 4.1 million videos.
  • Google delivers results for 3.6 million searches.
  • Wikipedia users publish 600 new edits.

What’s more, it’s estimated that 90% of all online data was created in the last two years.

That’s a lot of data. So here’s a few more bytes to maintain the daily average.

Have something to say? Be my guest :-)
