It’s Jamie here from The Club!

In a minute you can do quite a few things. Eat a packet of sweets or maybe sing the verse to One Direction’s new song.

But it’s nothing compared to what happens in an “internet” minute.

Intel completed a recent study and here are some of the things they found that take place in one short minute on the worldwide web.

-204 million e-mails are sent out

-47,000 apps are downloaded

-$83,000 USD worth of goods are sold on Amazon

-6 million Facebook pages are made

-1.3 million YouTube video clips are viewed

If just reading about all this is making your head spin, think about this – the study has only taken into account the world’s biggest sites. There are millions of other things that take place that aren’t even included, and just think… what would happen in an hour?!
