    Good job :)
    But… as there are about 6.8 billion people on Earth, how 6.8 billion people can use Internet ?
    Another point is about Facebook data. It’s now confirmed that stats published by Facebook are wrong. For example, Facebook says that they have 1.6 million members in Oslo as there are only 800,000 people in Oslo. They also say that they have 850,000 20-29 years old members in Norway but… there are only 613,000 20-29 years old people in Norway… Same thing for France and many other countries Facebook stats.

    You were right about the number of internet users. Guess I made an error there… I corrected the infographic. Thanks for your reply.

  3. Götz on said:

    Only 1.9 million internet users? I first thought this is an infographic from 1993, but then discovered ‘Facebook’ terms.

    I guess you meant 1.9 billion internet users, although I don’t know the real value.

  4. Qiller on said:

    That’s just 1.9 million people are using the internet?

  5. shema on said:

    Hey, it should be “Worldwide 1,9 billion are using…” instead of “Worldwide 1,9 million are using…”. Facebook has 500 million users…

    Anyway, excellent job!

    thanks for useful info-graphic :D that’s awesome numbers

  7. Bryn on said:

    I think you mean 1.96 billion (not million!) users =)

  8. Dennis on said:

    Gotta love the “if facebook were a country” part of the graph. Well done!

  9. Kvn on said:

    Oops, fixed :) I need some sleep…

  10. Dan P on said:

    I’m not sure if this is really an infographic. Almost everything is just text. The closest you got was your horizontal bar graph of people.

  11. ken on said:

    really cool info. Just small recommendation though.
    Probably better that you fix that icon for Asia ….some people WILL be offended by that and interpret that as narrow mindedness and anachronism.

    Your Comments
    Spelling error – 60,000 Full Lengths Film – the error is in Lengths …

    Otherwise a fun tool to use …

  13. Visitor on said:

    I like how you stereotyped the asians with the pointy hat, retards..

  14. Paul on said:

    If facebook were a country – cool!:)
    I didn`t believe that google indexed so few information… Strange…

  15. t3amBrian on said:

    Is there a reason why decimal points are comma’s instead of um… decimal points!? That’s the only thing keeping me from liking this info graphic. You should probably fix that. It’s a huge mistake.

  16. Kvn on said:

    @t3amBrian: some countries use comma’s, other use decimal points.

  17. Eddie on said:

    Welcome to the real world t3amBrian. Not everyone does things the way you do in your country. The huge mistake here is your ethnocentrism and lack of awareness of the world you live in.

  18. Gustavo Martinez on said:

    firts this work is excellent!!!

    I would like to share this Infographic in my blog, assuming credit, it can be done?


  19. Chris McCray on said:

    “…60,000 Full Lenghts Films…”

    - typo/spelling mistake – should be:

    “…60,000 Full Length Films…”

    Great infographic btw!

    Starling figures. Just 14 years of internet and this is something huge.

  21. Nabil on said:

    Yo, this infographic kicks ass. It’s awesome!

  22. choo on said:

    good data thank share

  23. Geek Blogger on said:

    Very interesting figure :) , Looks like a ware of getting visitors between FB and Twitter. and i am shocked about the fact that Google has just cached 0.004 % of web data, amazing.

  24. Daniel on said:

    That human brain part is wrong. I think the brain holds 17 exabytes. I’m not sure about that but I know it’s in the exabyte range which puts it orders of magnitude away from the terabyte figure you have there.

  25. Your Name on said:

    That’s just 1.9 million people are using the internet?

  29. Ant Bradshaw on said:

    found the fact if facebook was a country it would be the 3rd biggest country very interesting! and there are 640 tweets per second on twitter !!

    superb post, thank you

    It seems that we have a lot of critics on the numbers. Bottom line is most everyone uses the internet for search, social media and general information. It is not going away. It will continue to grow at a furious rate and nothing will stop it. The Customer Advantage will be driven by this medium. Those that see it now will be the leaders of the future. The possibilities are endless and very real. Get a grasp on the concept and make it happen. The sheer numbers in this graphic should be enough proof that we all have the same common opportunity, right now, to become uncommon. What you do now will have a profound impact on your future and the future of those you share this FREE opportunity with.
    Good Luck and God Bless…

  38. steven on said:

    Great infographic (and subject).
    Are you sure that google only indexes .004% of the internet? I always thought it was a lot more than that…
    And was this hard to make? I’d like to learn how to make an Infographic some day.
    You’re is very cool. :) Steven

  39. presidentofgalaxy on said:

    I like your stats – I think I have seen some similar at Discovery Channel some weeks ago – but I guess this was the original

  40. carbuzz on said:

    Would be interesting to run this again, I’m sure the stats will have increased enormously already.

  41. Sebastian on said:

  42. Oneswoop.com on said:

  43. Mark on said:

    Nice work! Interesting numbers. Didn’t now that 42% of the usage was from Asia. That was a huuuge number!

  44. Bantningsmetoder on said:

    Amazing stat.. Imagine that only approx. 19 % of the worlds population have Internet in their home. This is only the beginning. Growth is yet to become.
