We just showed you how many people and things are coming online in real time (at least by Cisco’s measure). Now let’s take a look at what people are actually doing.
Well, it’s not exactly a real-time look, but according to data compiled by Qmee, this is what goes on in sixty second on the web:
And that doesn’t even take into account all the other sites, apps and services on the web. I can stumble through a whole lot of stuff with StumbleUpon in sixty seconds, for example. For that matter, there’s a hell of a lot of Facebook activity going on that doesn’t translate into actual posts and likes (think newsfeed browsing and chatting).
If Cisco’s right about 50 billion things being connected to the internet by 2020, we can expect a lot of these numbers to go up greatly in the coming years (though this includes things like cows and tires, so I’m not sure all they’ll all translate into active Pinterest users).
