    The Internet! In 2012! In Numbers!

    Golly, this interweb really looks like it's gonna take off.  Wait, what year is this?  

    The nice folks at Pingdom have compiled together the mother of all stats collection on the Internet.  For example, internet users around the globe:

    Internet users

    • 2.4 billion – Number of Internet users worldwide.
    • 1.1 billion – Number of Internet users in Asia.
    • 519 million – Number of Internet users in Europe.
    • 274 million – Number of Internet users in North America.
    • 255 million – Number of Internet users in Latin America / Caribbean.
    • 167 million – Number of Internet users in Africa.
    • 90 million – Number of Internet users in the Middle East.
    • 24.3 million – Number of Internet users in Oceania / Australia.
    • 565 million – Number of Internet users in China, more than any other country in the world.
