Think you know the Internet? Think again

Think you know the Internet? Think againBusiness Insider recently ran an interesting look at what’s fueling the Internet these days.

It’s a fascinating story because so many of us have become dependent on the online world in such a short time. Most of us don’t really know how this colossal communications and information tool really works.

Business Insider, though, found several interesting facts about what really goes on online. Here are some of the most intriguing:

Facebook Is King. We all know Facebook is huge. But the social media company isn’t just big: it dominates the Internet.

Business Insider quoted data from Hitwise to determine just how big of a player Facebook has become: Facebook accounts for one out of every five page views on the Internet. Facebook also, in September of 2012, reached 1 billion users.

The Biggest Data Center Is Rising in Utah Business Insider also reported that the largest data center in the world is under construction in Utah. The National Security Agency is behind this center, and once the data center is complete it will store a yottabyte of data.

You might not know what a yottabyte is. But it is big. It equals 1,000 zettabytes or 1 million exabytes, according to Business Insider.

Streaming Is on the RiseBusiness Insider quoted Harris Interactive numbers showing that more than 50 percent of U.S. residents use the Internet to watch TV. This is done through streaming video, and the service is becoming especially popular among people under the age of 35.

Harris Interactive found that streaming TV shows from the Internet, and watching them on smartphones, tablets and other devices, has become the favorite way of U.S. residents under 35 to watch TV.

The Internet Is a Cash RegisterPeople also like to use the Internet to buy, according to Business Insider. According to the story, 27 percent of U.S. consumers use their smartphones and the mobile Internet to shop. A total of 7 percent of U.S. consumers have purchased items from online auction sites.

U.S. residents aren’t shy about banking through the Internet, either. According to Business Insider, 33 percent of U.S. residents use their smartphones and Internet for mobile banking.
