Interesting Computer and Internet Statistics (Sort of)

I came across the following computer usage and Internet statistics on four infographics at

  • The average US computer user spends 66 hours per month using a computer—not including any time using a computer as part of their work. This actually seems low to me. When you divide this back to a daily rate it is only 2.2 hours per day. I can assure you I spend much more time than this on a computer per day not including work.

  • 3 out of 4 workers in the US admit to spending more than 30 minutes per day surfing the Web when they should be working (i.e., they were not on a break).

  • FilmsUploadedEvery week the equivalent of 60,000 full length feature movies is up loaded to YouTube.

  • 95 percent of downloaded music is pirated and used illegally in breach of copyright.

  • There are 1.9 billion people, almost a third of the world’s population, using the Internet.

  • Asian users comprise the largest segment of users using the Internet, being 42 percent.

  • Europe comes in second with 24.1 percent of the Internet users.

  • Surprisingly North America only makes it to third place comprising just 14.6 percent of the total of Internet users.

  • The Google search engine indexes less than 0.04 percent of all information stored on the Internet and about one percent of all information available via the Web.

  • About 2 billion (2,000,000,000) videos are viewed on YouTube each day.

  • NoofBlogsThere are 126,000,000 ‘blogs’ on the Web (no wonder I can only get about 60 to 70 people visiting mine).
