Ten Years of the Internet

In 2002, the number of people using the internet as a whole was equal to the number of Facebook users there were in 2012.

Just let that one marinate a little.

I remember 2002 and the internet; I spent a lot of time on message boards and other forum-type websites. I also started reading blogs around that time, and was deeply impressed by this amazing new first person writing space called blogging.

It’s been a pretty amazing thing, watching the internet grow up, hasn’t it?

This amazing infographic created by bestedsites.com, showcases how things have changed. Crazy!
