The Internet has changed so much in the two decades since it came into existence. It all started when researcher Leonard Kleinrock’s published his first paper entitled “Information Flow in Large Communication Nets” on May 31, 1961, and since has grown to be a commercial success with billions of dollars of annual investment.
The internet has become the basic need of people, and it’s changing our life enormously. With powerful affordable computing and communications in portable form (i.e., laptops, smartphones, and tablets), it has become a part of our life.
The gif below created by Penny Stocks Lab shows a dynamic infographic that illustrated what happens on the internet during the time you spend looking at the graphic. There are around 100,000 facebook likes per second, 10,000 tweets per second and 5,000 youtube videos watched per second. Its shows the vastness of the internet and with the progress of technology, we can expect it to be even more in the future.
One might think the internet is for communication, education and using it for social media interaction. But if you look at the big picture, there is billions and trillions of money generated from websites. Almost all the businesses these days have websites, through which they promote and advertise themselves. Facebook via their ads generates a profit of $100 per sec, with Google generating a whopping $1000 per sec.
