Here’s what happens every minute on the internet in 2021

  • New research has shed light on what happened every minute on the internet in 2021.
  • It found that every 60 seconds more than 500 hours of content was uploaded on YouTube and 695,000 stories were shared on Instagram.
  • Nearly 70 million messages were sent via WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger.
  • In that same minute, there were two million swipes on Tinder and 1.6 million U.S. dollars was spent online.

The digital world is a universe in its own right and a very fast moving one at that. Myriads of downloads and uploads, posts and searches, messages sent and received, listens and streams happen every minute on the world wide web.
