150 million emails are sent every minute on average across the Internet

@rahulag80: This is what happens on the Internet in 60 seconds #bigdata

You thought YOU got too many emails? You’re not alone. 150 million emails are sent every minute on average across the Internet, according to data from consulting and technology solutions company Excelacom.

If that’s not proof the Internet is huge, for comparison, the U.S. Postal Service processes just 353,000 pieces of mail each minute — that’s about 0.2% the number of emails sent.

But beyond just email, a lot is happening on the Internet in not a lot of time. In the span of just one minute, on average:

And many of those numbers have grown significantly over the past year. Uber saw 695 more rides booked per minute in 2016 over 2015 — a 100% year-over-year increase, and Amazon AMZN, -0.82%   sales rose 70% per minute, by $83,836, to $203,596. Tinder is also growing like crazy. In just one minute, more potential suitors are swiped on Tinder than the number of people logging into Facebook FB, -0.51% And here’s one you might not guess — more videos are viewed in one minute than Google GOOG, -1.61%  search queries made.

If Snapchatting, Tindering or online shopping isn’t your thing, you could also spend that minute making your bed, holding a plank, flossing your teeth, watering your plants or even cranking out 20 burpees.
