Default How many people in the world do you think are on the internet right now?

How many people would you guess... Are starring at a computer monitor.

FaceBook has 500,000,000 members?

So is it possible that 1 billion people could be online right now? Or would I be way off?... during any part of the day could 1 billion people be on the WWW?

I'm also including X-Box and Playstation 3... and the Wii.

This internet stuff has just exploded. 15-20 years ago it wasn't anything compared to what it is today.

Have you ever thought about it?

Computers were expensive back than, and lot of folks didn't have one. If you did have one, a lot of folks didn't have the internet. If you had the internet, it was slow dial-up.

Now, you don't even need a computer for the internet.

Good question.

Other questions for you and others to ponder:
-when was the last time you went an entire day without getting online?
-could you go "cold turkey and "quit" the internet?
-what was your internet activity like 5 years ago? 10? 15? Compare that to now.

Yeah, it really is amazing. I really doubt anyone goes more than a few hours at a time without staring at some sort of screen.

An even better question is, how many people are currently using the internet to look at naughty videos?

I can honestly say I've never really gone on Twitter... and I've used MySpace, Facebook just briefly.

I love Youtube... greatest website ever.

Yahoo too.

Whenever I'm on vacation I make it a point not to do anything online except print boarding passes. Much more relaxing that way.
