How Much Data Is Created Every Minute?

Thursday's sporadic Twitter outages gave addicts like us the shakes. After all, Twitter users average over 100,000 tweets per minute, and the site was down for a whole lot longer than that.

Twitter is far from the only channel through which web users funnel data. Business intelligence company DOMO paired up with Column Five Media to create this infographic, which shows just how much data is generated every minute.

Next time you run a Google search, think about the fact that it's just one of 2 million that Google will receive in that minute. In the same amount of time, Facebook users post 684,478 pieces of content. Crazier still, online shoppers spend an average of $272,070 every minute. That's over $391 million every day — quite the chunk of change.

Check out the stats below to learn the amount of data created across all of your favorite platforms. Google+ is noticeably missing from the bunch, but we're kind of happy about that. It might be kind of embarrassing.
