The internet is growing faster than many of us ever realize. It is very difficult to wrap our heads around the size of the internet mainly because it is not a physical thing that we can see in one sitting.

So what really does happen in 60 seconds on the internet? I found a great infographic created by Go-Globe.com that gives us a great idea on what actually does happen in 1 minute on the web.
