Internet Statistics

Tonight’s “By the Numbers” post focuses on something a bit more macro than the rest. I recently had to write a piece about internet usage and needed to find out how many people used the internet. That got me thinking that we often look at individual websites and platforms here, but I’ve never taken a step back and explored the framework that makes all of this possible.

Here are the most interesting internet statistics I was able to dig up including how many people actually use the internet and how many don’t.

Facebook Messenger Statistics

Ever since Facebook spun off the messaging function of their mobile app, they have been racking up some pretty impressive usage numbers. Facebook Messenger has been growing exponentially over the past year or so and has quickly become more than an app and pretty much a full mobile platform.

While I have been keeping Facebook Messenger statistics in my Facebook mobile statistics post since its launch, after hearing that Facebook will no longer require a Facebook account in order to use Messenger, it seemed like a good time to break out the stats and focus this new post on Messenger.

Here are the more interesting Facebook Messenger stats that I was able to dig up so far

The thought is that it connects users with similar interests who are close-by and would normally never meet.
Momo has been popping up quite a bit in my feeds lately, so I decided to take a look at just how poplar their service is.

So what did Amazon get for all those $$$? The numbers are pretty amazing for a “niche” platform. Apparently, there are a lot of people interested in live streaming video games. Here are some of the more interesting Twitch stats I was able to dig up…
