Check out this infographic, swiped from those innovative wags over at mbaonline.com. It simply serves up widely-available data about our daily web interactions, but viewed in the collective–with pretty pictures–it’s staggering. Three years ago, I used to blow clients minds with the simple fact that everyday, people upload 9,200 hours of video to YouTube, a figure made more staggering since there are only 8,760 hours in a year.
Today, that number stands at 864,000 hours of video. Or damn near 100 years worth of kitties and bad karaoke uploaded every day. The ease of posting from your cell phone makes this inevitable.
On the upside, I guess I don’t have to sweat my punctuation and word choice so much: with two million blog posts launching every day, who’s gonna notice?
Anyway, enjoy. Or get very scared. Or, far more likely, go find some other distraction. The net’s lousy with them…
I’ve been behind the eight ball all day and it’s only getting worse so in lieu of actual fresh and insightful blog content, I’m just gonna repost something genius done by someone else. And of course, it’s an infographic. This one comes courtesy of Chicago freelancer George Ellis, who apparently also has a healthy professional self-loathing streak. Thanks to the eagle-eyed Bob Merlotti for the find.
