The following infographic was created by Domo and is posted in the blog on their website. It shows the amount of content that is created on the web in a minute!

Some of the comparisons are a drastic change in two years. Google searches doubled from 2,000,000 to 4,000,000. Facebook leaped from sharing 684,478 pieces of content to 2,460,000 pieces of content. Tweets jumped from 100,000 a year to 277,000. Even greater increases can be seen in the posting of images in Instagram from 3,600 to 216,000. However, not surprising, email messages stayed relatively the same.

It is quite alarming to think what the infographic for online content will look like in 2016? 2018? and 2020?
