An Internet Second (or, Does the Internet Pollute?) [INFOGRAPHIC]
Over the last decade, the Internet has grown expeditiously and with the influx of mobile devices, social platforms, and apps, it has become a powerhouse that touches our daily lives in significant and now-necessary ways. No longer can you go into a subway without seeing practically everyone’s heads bent towards their smartphones or walk a nature trail without running into someone taking a selfie with a tree. Online dating, which used to be derided for only those who were desperate, now has become the norm and, in many cases, the best option for early courtship.
Even with the understanding that billions are using the worldwide web, it is outstanding to see the vast amount of activity broken down into a single second. Irish Telecom put together an interesting infographic detailing these statistics which even goes so far as to answer the average amount of CO2 emissions directly resulting from Internet usage per second!
