The fruits of the information society are easy to see, with a cellphone in every pocket, a computer in every backpack, and big information technology systems in back offices everywhere. But less noticeable is the information itself. Data has begun to accumulate to the point where something new and special is taking place.
Here are some interesting facts:
- Google processes more than 24 petabytes of data per day, a volume that is thousands of times the quantity of all printed material in the U.S. Library of Congress.
- Facebook gets more than 10 million new photos uploaded every hour.
- Facebook members click a “like” button or leave a comment nearly three billion times per day, creating a digital trail that the company can mine to learn about users’ preferences.
- The number of messages on Twitter grows at around 200 percent a year and by 2012 had exceeded 400 million tweets a day.
