I recently came across an interesting graphic and statistics from Gizmodo

The image is a pretty good graphical representation of what happens on the internet within a 60 second time frame. Pretty amazing how much (stuff) goes on!
• 1500+ blog posts
• 98,000 new tweets
• 12,000 new ads on Craigslist
• 20,000 new posts on Tumblr
• 600 new videos (more than 24 hours worth) on YouTube
• More than 3,000 images each minute to Flickr

It’s no wonder that it is difficult at times to find exactly what you are looking for on the web and a lot of search engines return duplicate and/ or worthless results.

A little fun factoid to ponder: In 2012, internet users in the U.S. will expand by 3.1% to 239 million, representing 75.6% of the total population.
