Check out this infographic from Domo entitled Data never sleeps – how much data is generated every minute?
The numbers are mind-boggling that’s for sure. Aside from the scale of searching – two million requests to Google every minute – there is the vast, vast amount of content created. WordPress users alone are posting 347 posts a minute. That pales when we see that Youtube users upload 48 hours of footage every minute.
Oh, and check out the amount of posts published on Tumblr – 27,778 a minute. And I though WordPress was popular blogging platform!
If you wanted confirmation of data overload then this infographic probably does the job. It is also explains why aggregators and curators are becoming more important, helping users get to relevant information more quickly.
