One More Message And Your Brain Might Explode

As you're reading this email/tweet/Facebook post or RSS feed there's every likelihood that your brain may just explode...

Look at the latest numbers released on THE BIG THINK -

* 107 trillion – The number of emails sent on the Internet in 2010.
* 294 billion – Average number of email messages per day.
* 1.88 billion – The number of email users worldwide.
* 480 million – New email users since the year before.
* 89.1% – The share of emails that were spam.
* 262 billion – The number of spam emails per day (assuming 89% are spam).
* 1.97 billion – Internet users worldwide (June 2010).
* 14% – Increase in Internet users since the previous year.
* 152 million – The number of blogs on the Internet (as tracked by BlogPulse).
* 25 billion – Number of sent tweets on Twitter in 2010
* 175 million – People on Twitter as of September 2010
* 600 million – People on Facebook at the end of 2010.
* 20 million – The number of Facebook apps installed each day.
* 7.7 million – People following @ladygaga (Lady Gaga, Twitter’s most followed user).
Oooooh. That last one was a little sad.

Now, I realize I’m adding to these numbers and the information overload – I'm just curious to see if your brain really would explode.

If so, have the nurse shoot me an email, or you can fill out my brief questionnaire on SurveyMonkey. I'm baking a pie chart.
