big data getting bigger by the minute

How much data is generated every minute? Obviously the short answer is A LOT! Domo put it together in an infographic. From videos to GIFs, emoji-filled tweets and messages, and beyond.

Staggering to think, it’s increasing and changing how and where the data sources come from all the time. Only four years ago 48 hours of YouTube was uploaded every second, now it’s 400 hours every second. Email’s sent and it’s use has slowed with the rise of collaborative apps like Slack. Four years ago things such as Snapchat and Tinder were merely ideas. Much has changed in how much data is created in four years, a lot more will change by 2020.

Undoubtedly the pioneers of the internet had no idea what would become of their theories when applied, certainly not that people would be slapping hearts and video snippets sent through iMessage.
