Why's Facebook in blue is actually very interesting, never heard of it before. So, I guess he's colorblind? At least he picked a pretty blue color.

All of these facts are so hard to actually fully comprehend, you think you get it, but you don't. These numbers are so high and insane it can take a while to process their significance. Thank you for such a nice list, Mike! Now I can memorize some facts and show off in front of my colleagues.

I know right! It makes me wonder, okay, so if Mark wasn't colorblind, what would Facebook's color scheme actually be then? I couldn't imaging a red or green colored FB can you? lol cheers and yeah I guess! Some Mad Crazy Internet Facts and Stats about the Internet

There's about 470,000 Facebook Likes vs There are about 123,000 YouTube videos viewed.

I always thought Youtube was the bigger social network between the two and that Youtube most surely haves a lot more viewed videos every second. Also, Zuckerburg suffers from red-green color blindness, I loled.
Aswome facts Mike loved them!

The fact about why facebook is blue was really interesting. But to reply to your post Mr. Crisian. I'm not sure if YouTube videos count just per click or certain time spent watching the video. If it's the second one, than the numbers should be much higher. Perhaps they only captured a small part of people who were already watching a video and were close to ending it.

haha thought you'd like that Cris it took me a bit by surprise as a fact too and had to look it up to make sure it wasn't hocus pocus but apparently it's true. Yeah he has a different kind of color blindness the reg/green one. Another surprising fact about that is that it affects 1 in every 12 males in the US alone, but less than 1 in every 200 females. Weird but true! lol Some Mad Crazy Internet Facts and Stats about the Internet And yeah, I think they have about the same but there's a lot more posts and comments and things people like than there is YouTube videos.

Alibaba - world's fifth-largest internet company by revenue.
Alibaba hired farmers for its sales force lol.
Alibaba delivers average of 54 million packages per day. i.e 625 packages delivered per second.

The freelancers typing part got me going Wow!. I like the part that we are exercising our brain muscles likewise hand muscles as well. Though there downsides to it as well, like sitting for extended periods of time and so on.

That was an awesome list, great job! To be honest, anytime I have a look at lists like this with these insane facts, it always feels so humbling. To think of the absolutely ridiculous amount of things that happen within just one second, it is truly mindboggling. It can really put things in perspective. I might just be here, sitting in my chair and typing away at some random forum, but around me is this massive web of activity. It is like how when you zoom out from the planet Earth you see that there is just an incomprehensible amount of activity in the universe.

That is really interesting about Facebook. I thought they actually used color psychology, and that blue can represent trust, peace, loyalty, and integrity.

I think I have already read the speed of Google in searching although I’m not sure if the number have changed. For sure, it was less than a second and that quickness was what fired up the imagination of people in using Google that now it is the search engine of the world. Isn’t it amazing to think that a search engine has to consider all the websites out there? And they number in billions huh. But still, Google can point you to what you are searching in a split second. Wow, that’s too fast.
