A Day In the Life On The Internet

    March 11, 2012

I think all of us spend an unhealthy amount of time on the Internet, but that’s what makes it awesome. A bottle of bourbon and three grande meals from Taco Bell taught us the joys of things that are bad for us years ago. Now that the Internet has taken over, it would be interesting to see just how much time we spend on this wonderful invention of the gods. Worry not, dear reader, as we have all those statistics right here.

MBAOnline has created this handy infographic compiling the insane amount of time we spend on the Internet. This isn’t just the important stuff either, this is the ridiculously stupid stuff we waste our time with online. Let’s start with the most important statistic first though. It’s said that all the information we consume as a collective whole daily on the Internet would fill 168 million DVDs. That’s a lot of copies of Apocalypse Now.

As for our social networking obsession, 174 million people visit Facebook a day. That’s compared to 40 million for Twitter a day, 22 million for LinkedIn, 20 million for Google+ and 17 million on Pinterest. In what makes me feel bad, we spend 4.7 billion minutes on Facebook a day.

As for videos, 864,000 hours of YouTube videos are uploaded to the Internet every day. As the infographic points out, that’s 98 years of “non-stop cat videos.”

What may be a topic close to many Internet users’ hearts, the average Netizen spends 14.6 minutes watching porn. They even go so far as to say that the average “fap session” lasts 12 minutes.

All these and other stats are collected below to make us all feel bad about how much time we’re wasting online. Oh, who am I kidding? The Internet is awesome and we should feel good about how much we use it.
