Internet Fun Facts as of 21 July 2011

Updated on July 22, 2011



My top 4 internet fun facts

Jesus and Justin Beiber

There are more searches for Justin Beiber than there are for Jesus on the internet. This fact took my pretty much by surprise as i have no idea what Justin is all about. It just goes to show what people are interested in. The flip side of the coin is that people already know who Jesus is and the best place to search for his activities, as it were- would be the Bible?

Or is it the fact that children out number adults in the use of the internet that such a statistic should be generated? Or maybe the adult population joins the children when it comes to interests. My guess is that parents google Justin Beiber to find out just who this kid is thats driving their young daughters crazy.

Bad Romance by Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga and birds

Lady Gaga is twitters most followed person. According to the website, she has 8.400.000 followers. That is a major following! Well the lady certainly knows how to handle her publicity. I give her credit for the image she has built. She truly has a style of her own!

Not only does she have one of the most unique collection of outfits.Lady Gaga also has some very interesting music video that show a great depth in imagination and daring.


1 out of 13 people are is on Facebook

Well yours truly would really be interested to see how this statistic changes as Google+ is currently being hailed as the fastest growing social network. To date, Facebook is reported to have 600 million users while its predecessor, Myspace sits at 130million users. Google+ falls only 40 million shy of Myspace at the time of going to press. This is going to be an interesting season in terms of the swing in social network dominance, it will also be interesting to see how this affects the advertising platform on both ends.


The Fastest internet in the world

South Korea has the worlds best broadband in terms of quality. The download speed is averaged to have a latency of 48 milliseconds, this means it is basically ready for High definition video online. Imagine conferencing at such great speeds (Source of Facts:

According to South Korea announced that it aims to have download speeds of up to 1GB per second by the year 2012. Japan is ,at the time of going to press ,only offering half the speed South Korea has at present.
