Even though Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) did a great job breaking down this information it’s still difficult to get your head around the sheer volume of information that is transferred each minute. That includes:

  • will sell  $83,000 worth of merchandise
  • LinkedIn will see over 100 new subscribers
  • Pandora will stream 61,141 hours of music
  • 2 million search queries will be handled by Google alone
  • 20 million photos will be viewed on flickr
  • Twitter will sign up another 320+ users and deal with over 100,000 new tweets in one minutes time
  • Facebook will have 277,000 people log-in who along with users who stay logged in will view Facebook 6,000,000 times
  • 30 hours of new video will be uploaded to YouTube while the site will handle 1.3 million video views

These numbers represent only a fraction of an “internet minute” but that is the nature of a network that has that many users constantly online.
