A new infographic by rewarded search site Qmee offers a glimpse at the digital doings that occur globally over the span of each minute.

Take A Look At What Happens Every Single Minute On The Internet

Created by rewards site Qmee, “Online In 60 Seconds” is a pie chart that shows off the sheer amount of online activity that takes place every single minute.

Additionally, over 1.8 million things are liked on Facebook, and 278 thousand bon mots tweeted. Not depicted in the chart: the amount of work that is going undone while all of these items are being viewed.
