According to Domo (cloud-based operating system), the internet users have risen from 2.2 billion in 2012 to whopping 3.8 billion in 2017. That is nearly 48% of the entire world’s population. In its 6th Data Never Sleeps report, Domo took into consideration online consumer behavior besides analyzing the amount of data which gets generated in a minute across various platforms.
The graph for social media has predictably gone way up as Snapchat witnessed a sharp and enormous increase of 294% in the number of pictures which are shared every minute. On average, 2.1 million are shared in a minute while roughly 474,000 tweets are shared. When it comes to Instagram and Tumblr, the posts shared every minute go up to nearly 50,000 and 80,000 respectively.
