A Day in the Life of the Internet [INFOGRAPHIC]

'A day in the life' was the title of the famous band Beatles song that was part of the famous Beatles album 'Sgt Pepper's lonely Hearts Club Band', released in 1967.  Since at that time there was no internet or Youtube, but records, it took the Sgt Pepper's double jacket colourful record to come to Lahore. And of the five brothers, I was the lucky one who walked over to Hall Road and bought the record for Rs. 75.

It had many beautiful songs like 'When I am 64, 'She is leaving home, Good Morning Good Morning, Lucy in the sky with diamonds, and of course A day in life.' This album became an instant hot favourite when it was released in 1967. In 1994 it was ranked number one in the book All Time Top 1000 Albums. In 2003, the album was placed at number one on Rolling Stone magazine's list of "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time". Sgt. Pepper is one of the world's best selling albums, having shipped 32 million copies.

And coming back to A day in Life. It was a beautiful song and still reverberates in my memories. But that was a day log time before. Today this post of mine is about the present - A day in the life of Internet. internet has become 'the day' of our lives as everyday we sit in front of our desktops, laptops, tablets and even smartphones, get connected to the world wide web and spend endless time each day connected to the world.

Perhaps internet is one such invention that has superseded all others before it - no other gadget or technology is so widely been used ever than internet. I came across one survey [infographic] at Mashable and thought of sharing with the readers - a survey which is about A Day in the Life of the Internet. And is so much revealing and informative - something so important related to our lives.

Just glance through the Infographic and see what goes on the world of internet every day. And by the way keep listening to the song by the Beatles as you scroll down through the infographic below:
