Infographic: The Absolutely Ridiculous Amount of Content Consumed Every MinuteBy Nicole Dieker July 26th, 2016
How many Facebook posts did you like today? Can you tally up the tweets you’ve read since this morning or recall your retweets? I bet if you knew how many posts, tweets, ‘grams, videos, and stories you read and shared every day, the number would probably shock you.
A lot of us start reading, watching, and scrolling from the minute we wake up. We grab our smartphones to silence our alarms and immediately check our notifications. In the first 60 seconds of your day, Facebook receives over 4 million likes. More than 2 million Instagram hearts turn red. Nearly 350,000 tweets join the birds singing outside your window.
A new infographic from The Word Pro shows us just how much content is created and shared every minute of every day. People post 300 hours of video to YouTube and watch nearly 7 million Snapchat videos every minute. We’re binging Netflix, swiping through Tinder, and keeping one thumb on social media so we can share our reactions and stay up to date with our feeds.
Take a look at the infographic below—and the next time you like a Facebook post, remember, there are 4,166,666 people doing the same thing that minute.
