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.
