Here's Why A Minute On The Internet Is More Like A Million Hours

Here’s Why A Minute On The Internet Is More Like A Million Hours

Close your eyes. Stand still. Do you feel something swirling around you? It’s not the wind, it’s the data. Not to alarm you, but data is everywhere. It picks up speed and takes up space. And Domo(Opens in a new window) measured this data for its 2022 Data Never Sleeps report.

The report examines a minute on the Internet. If you’re one of those people who feels overwhelmed by too much communication, shield your eyes from this next part: in just 60 seconds, 16 million text messages and 231.4 million emails are sent.

On social networks, 1.7 million pieces of content are shared on Facebook, 347,200 tweets are written, 66,000 photos fill Instagram feeds and 2.43 million snaps appear and disappear on Snapchat, all in one minute.

Daters swipe left and right on Tinder 1.1 million times per minute. As for the money, $473,600 is cents via Venmo. And in terms of “money,” $90.2 million worth of crypto was purchased. Somehow, in the midst of all this other activity, a collective 104,600 hours are spent on Zoom.

If all those numbers are making you tired and hungry, you can partake in DoorDash’s million hours of streaming and $76,400 that also manages to fit in that minute.
