"500 million photos are uploaded every day. Sharing of digital
information has grown 9 times in five years. And China is leading the
digital charge. If you haven’t seen it already, “Queen of the ‘Net” Mary
Meeker has uploaded her latest report on Internet trends.
Among the highlights: Emerging markets continue
to lead in the 8% year-over-year growth in global Internet users, with
China adding the most (264 million users from 2008-2012). And while 81%
of users are outside of the U.S., 80% of the top 10 global internet
properties were made in the U.S. (Google, Microsoft and Facebook are at
the top of that list.) Another interesting international comparison:
Americans are under sharers. Just 15% of Americans report that they
share “everything” or “most things” online, compared to a world average
of 24%. Saudi Arabians are the world’s biggest sharers and the Japanese
share the least."
