An Irish man had a role in the early development of the Internet, 30 million matches are made on Tinder every day and last year 5 million YouTube videos were viewed every 60 seconds… here’s five things you didn’t know about the Internet!

  • Of the 7.2 billion people in the world, over 3.3 billion use the Internet. 1.7 billion of those users are in Asia.
  • In just 60 seconds of Internet in 2014, 293,000 Facebook statuses were updated, 433,000 tweets were sent, 27,000 Snapchats were sent, there were 2.66 million Google searches, 67,000 Instagram pictures were uploaded, and over 5 million YouTube videos were viewed.
  • Irish man, academic and Internet Pioneer (in the Internet Hall of Fame) Dr Dennis Jennings had a role in the early design and development of the Internet. He was responsible for three critical decisions that shaped the subsequent development of NSFNET, the network that became the Internet.
  • The online dating industry generates over $1.7 billion a year.?We recently heard from the CEO of Tinder at the Web Summit who told us Tinder creates 1.5 million dates each week, has 9 billion matches so far, and 30 million matches are made per day. Of the 194 countries that use Tinder, Ireland in particular has ?a highly engaged audience?.
  • Facebook was the first social network to reach over 1 billion registered accounts – Instagram has 400 million monthly users, Twitter has 316 million active monthly users and Snapchat has 200 million active4 monthly users.
