Visualising An Internet Minute!

What happens in an Internet Minute? How often do you use the internet to Google answers? How often do you log in to Facebook & scroll the news feed? During an average workday, a single minute seem negligible. If you’re lucky, a minute might buy you enough time to write a quick email, grab a coffee from the break room, or make small talk with a co-worker/a friend/ partner.  But in other situations, a minute can also be quite extraordinary. Imagine being a quarterback in the superbowl in overtime, or finding yourself in a life-and-death situation in which every second counts towards the outcome.  The numbers of services are extensive & that they can only be shown using the sixty second time scale, because if any bigger our brains will not be able to process these huge quantities in any useful way. It is not going to be of any significance if we calculate per month or per day data, just a picture of one minute- simple sixty seconds is enough to understand the magnitude of it’s use.
 
Visualizing an Internet Minute: The online activities of individuals move at a pace which is immeasurable.  With the number of social media platforms & apps increasing on a daily basis, it could be quite impossible to keep track of your inner circle, let alone of the remainder world.  When it comes to gauging the epic scale of the internet, it would seem that each minute leans closer to the extraordinary side of the spectrum. Our online activities move at a pace which is beyond fast but just how much activity is conducted online? The data transmitted alone is overwhelming, every second 1 Million users login on Facebook, 1.4 million people swipe on Tinder, & 4.5 Million users of YouTube. 41.6 million Messages are passed between various individuals on Whats App & Messenger.  All this is just a glimpse of the bigger picture. This kind of scale is almost impossible to grasp.
 
By visualizing an Internet Minute we can understand that as Visual Capitalist's Jeff Desjardins notes, when it comes to the vast scale of the internet, a minute of time goes much further than you ever could have imagined. That’s because the internet has a degree of scale that our human brains are unaccustomed to operating on. It's not just about what happens in a single minute in the digital ecosphere. It's how this activity is largely increasing for most brands and platforms. Digital presence has become a basic criteria to rank among the top players of the industry.
 
The content game has tilted, people trust the quality of content and thus the startups & individuals are getting a great start and the potential of gaining market presence has greatly increased. Cost friendliness and time flexibility are its crowning qualities.  The internet has given us an opportunity to showcase are talents in the most effective ways as well as establish a market for our- products & services.
 
The apps have made it easier to pay bills online, make other monetary transactions, maintain health records, schedule appointments, online shopping is the latest craze and many other such use have made the internet a significant part of our daily lives, because all such activities happen in time frame of a blink. The calculation of such data is complex yet fascinating indeed.     
 
Now that the internet can easily be accessed worldwide, the data transmitted online each second is overwhelming. In a social media universe there are no barriers to entry and almost infinite amounts of competition. People look to the people they trust to see what’s already being talking about, which is why influencers are more important than ever to marketers. For those that are able to get the strategy and timing right, the potential spoils are salivating. The never-ending challenge, however, is how to stand out from the crowd and so the quality of content plays a great role in earning extra points in the goodwill sphere for the individual/company.
 
These infographics boil it down in a very compact, relative way- The info-graphic is from Lori Lewis & Chadd Challahan who aggregate the online activity of billions of people globally, to see what an internet minute looks like.   
 
On realizing the truth of an internet minute, it’s good to reflect on the fact that how recklessly we waste time by taking it for granted. Although, we may not be able to match up to the internet speed, yet there is no doubt that we have immense scope for improvement. Internet also offers us the opportunity to enhance and develop our skills for which we don’t have sufficient funds. Be wise & prepare yourself for success.
