Internet Live Stats has created a live map that shows exactly how much activity is happening throughout the globe –down to the second. Every second more than 54,000 Google searchers are conducted, 7,000 some Tweets are shared and more than 2 million emails are sent --67 percent of them are deemed spam 

WHAT ARE THE INTERNET STATS? 

About 6,000 to 7,000 tweets are shared every second which equals to more than 350,000 every minute, 500 million per day and around 200 billion tweets every year.

Every second 729 photos are uploaded to Instagram, 125,406 videos are viewed on YouTube and 2,177 calls are made via Skype.

And at any given second there are 20,00 people on Facebook and during this time five more people open an account.

On Reddit, Alexa revealed that every second 286 votes are cast and 23 comments posted.

Google will received more than 3 billion searches, which averages to the 54,000 queries a second – that is over 90 billion each month and about 1.2 trillion a year worldwide.

Netflix reports it has 81 million users across the globe that binge some 1,450 hours of TV shows and moves each second.

And about 41 percent of its members pull something up to watch on the platform every day.

Although one second doesn't seem like much in the real world, it means quite a lot on the internet.

About 46.1 percent of the world is online, which is about 3.4 billion people – although there are still 4 billion people without access to the internet.

But compare this number to about five years ago, when there was just 31.8 percent surfing the web in the world, and we can image how much the worldwide web is growing.

About 6,000 to 7,000 tweets are shared every second which equals to more than 350,000 every minute, 500 million per day and around 200 billion tweets every year. 

The first tweet hit the internet on March 21, 2006 and it wasn’t until 2009 did the firm reach its billionth tweet.

Now it takes less than two days for one billion tweets to be sent. 

On any given day, Google will received more than 3 billion searches, which averages to the 54,000 queries a second – that is over 90 billion each month and about 1.2 trillion a year worldwide.

When the search giant first debuted in 1998, it was only serving 10,000 search queries each day.

Flash-forward to 2006 and that was the amount it served in one second.
