Just a Minute

What Happens in an Internet Minute? A set of answers has been posted to Intel’s “Scoop” blog by the harmoniously-named Krystal Temple: photo, right.

In just one minute, more than 204 million emails are sent. Amazon rings up about $83,000 in sales. Around 20 million photos are viewed and 3,000 uploaded on Flickr. At least 6 million Facebook pages are viewed around the world every minute. And more than 61,000 hours of music are played on Pandora while more than 1.3 million video clips are watched on YouTube.

Altogether, nearly 640 thousand million bytes of global Internet Protocol data is transferred in just one Internet minute!
