Lunchtime Trivia Friday, January 26

Our posting of the question and answer for Lunchtime Trivia Today has a bit of an ironic twist as you wouldn’t be able to view it if you weren’t part of the statistic! The question for today was;

 

This has increased more than 580% in the last 17 years. What is it?

 

And the answer was a bit of a surprise and had a number of people getting close but being too specific.

 

Number of Internet Users in the World.

 

Even though it is so prolific in our lives it is hard to believe there was a time where most of us were not online the number of internet users in the world has increased from 738 million in 2000 to an estimated 4.3 billion by the end of 2017. That is well over half of the earth’s population online.
