What Happened on the Internet in 2009?

I ran across an interesting collection of facts and figures about things that happened with the Internet in 2009. It reminded me a bit about the Karl Fisch “Did You Know?/Shift Happens” videos that have been floating around for a few years (worth a watch if you haven’t seen it).

Some of my favorite stats:

  • 126 million – The number of blogs on the Internet (as tracked by BlogPulse).
  • 4 billion – Photos hosted by Flickr (October 2009).
  • 12.2 billion – Videos viewed per month on YouTube in the US (November 2009).
  • 234 million – The number of websites as of December 2009.

Ahhhh, our little internet is finally growing up.
