Amazing facts. Yes, internet is vastly spreading itself and more and more people are using internet nowadays. It is good to see such a huge online presence. I wonder how Instagram has managed to store all our pics and how it is able to provide services free of cost. That is a massive statistic.

It would be wonderful if internet really helps the society in a positive way. From paying of bills online to ordering food online, it has made our lives simpler. You need not carry cash anywhere today and all transactions can be done by just a button click.

I don't know but I have a feeling that there is more than 50 percent of the people using Facebook. In our country, almost everyone is using it from the youngest up to oldest. Maybe the other percentage doesn't able to use Facebook because they are located on places where there is no internet connection but if there is I'm sure there's more than that percentage.

We certainly have a lot of Facebook users too. I'm about to believe almost that 50 percent belongs to this country hahaha. I was one of them, but I lost interest on it. A lot of my Facebook friends tend to be really annoying, and I just use it to remind me of birthdays. Honestly, my least favorite social media right now.

Truly internet has brought so much joy and excitement in our life. It is always a useful entity that contributes great help from communication, research and gathering of information and news. It's one of our gateway for knowledge. People are becoming active and express their freedom to speak without restriction. Fearless, in social media but not in reality. Kidding aside, Internet should be use wisely and not to be abused.

This is very true. A lot of people are very brave online but are afraid to get caught in real life. There are a lot of dummy accounts made by ruthless people who are very coward to reveal their identity online. This is one of the negative effects of the internet.

True. It takes a real person to be brave not only in words. It is similar to backbiting, when confronted. They keep silent and tell nothing. Let's not only focus on the negative effect of internet because it also has a great contribution in our life.

They have large data centers that hold thousands of servers that process information being uploaded and requested by active users. Their storage for all the data, images, and videos is so huge that is sufficient to hold when users uploads simultaneously.

I find your information useful. Sometimes, when I teach a topic about social media and how they affect our lives, informations like these are vital to establish your point. I am looking forward for more data and figures that can be used in my future presentations.

Well these facts about the internet are really mind boggling. The amount of influence that the Social media platforms like Facebook , Instagram and Twitter has on our daily life is reflected in these numbers. 95 Million photos being uploaded on Instagram evry day is simply an amazing fact. I think that this number is bound to increase a lot in the near future as the number of internet users is increasing progressively all throughout the World.

To be honest with you, I personally don't believe in the 7 billion theory. For example China claims to be 1.5 billion, but some sources claim they have 500 million. Demography is politics.

There's also another factor, many Freelancers might lose their job. Many people study English nowadays, as it's the world's #1 language. Being a Freelancer from not so rich countries is profitable, because you get paid in USD.

I think that internet give us a lot to of convenience especially into learning activities. We can do a lot of things from it from researching and to entertainment purposes as well. I think that internet is very popular nowadays all over the world and had been a major place to hang out by most people.

Yes, it's very popular to the point where people get distracted and unable to work properly if internet is being cut off from their lives. I can't even imagine our lives nowadays without internet. It would be a huge imbalance.

You will not like it in the first few weeks without internet connection. Because, you rely on it and had been part of your daily routine. But eventually, you will get used to having without connection. There will always a time for adjustments.

Imagine that 50 percent of the internet users are not having their data safe with facebook. That is serious. And the worst case is that they are using the apps such as instagram and others. Which are also owned by facebook. Which means their data is at serious risk. So one needs to be checking out other options. I'd say some really good facts being shared by the OP. I'd love to see few more such facts so that we can all learn more on changing things in the internet.

Exactly. When you take in consideration, those billions of people sharing their private life, and giving somehow access to it, that can be creepy. And is not just Facebook, we do know about it because the scandal, but what about another platforms that are doing too?

Indeed. Lot of people use those sites where they are giving personal information. mostly the instagram is where people mostly share their so many revealing images. which can be bad if those images are used against them later. it can be definitely bad in many ways. I hope that people mature and share wisely.

Yes, that's so scary. This is why I don't give all of my information all out on Facebook and other social networking sites. It's just very risky and I have seen some accounts of the people I know being hacked or close to being hacked

Indeed this is one reason I don't ask people to give their real info any where. Plus some of the time conspiracy theorists are the one who are more scary. Like people who think world has reptilians controlling internet.

Wow! Even though I already know that there are a lot of people who use internet daily, I'm still shocked. I can't believe that there are more that 2 Billion users of Facebook! All along, I thought it was just millions. Wow!

These are some interesting facts. It just goes to show that, if you are not doing business online these days, you should start considering it, or you might just see your business become obsolete. The business of this century is quickly shifting to online transactions. Not just business. It is becoming a way of life.

I think that most of the time I am using Facebook to stay connected and updated with my family and friends since they are important to me and I should know everything about them. It was been my favorite place to hang out whenever I feel bored or I want to know something about a particular person. It was really helpful because I can make new friends even without seeing other people personally.

Those are staggering numbers by the way! It's hard to imagine the number of users online as of writing this comment. Even people living in the remotest areas have access to the internet.

It is interesting to note that more than half of the people in the whole world are using the internet. The rest of the people are the people in the mountains that have no knowledge of technology and maybe the seniors who have not desire to use the internet anymore. It goes to show that the internet is taking over the world and probably the next generation will make the internet a requirement in life.

There is a pretty nifty website that displays all kinds of information relating to "internet facts" such as blog posts sent, facebook active users, etc..

Internet Live Stats
http://www.internetlivestats.com/

I'm not so sure how accurate this data is, but it is kind of amazing to watch. Even if it is like 90% correct, it is still almost mind blowing to watch the counts go up so fast. You really do not know how many people are truly using the internet unless you are privy to such information as Internet Live Stats displays.

Now with this being said, I think the favorite internet fact of them all is that the internet was first created for use by the military via internet protocols (TCP/IP). Think of how much technology that is not yet available to the public, and the things we could do with it. The military tech is about 10-20 years a head of every other country. That is crazy!
