What Happens in the Internet Each Minute in 2018? More Than Ever: eDiscovery Trends

The past two years, we’ve taken a look at a terrific infographic each year that illustrated what happens within the internet in a typical minute.  2018 is a new year and it’s always fun to take a fresh look.  So, let’s take a look at what happens in an internet minute in 2018.

But first, this week’s eDiscovery Tech Tip of the Week is about Creating Fields.  Classifying documents as responsive, non-responsive or privileged and recording and tracking information about the documents during the review and production process is key to effective workflow management of the discovery process as a whole.  The easier it is to be able to create the fields you need to classify and track documents through the review and production process.

To see an example of how Creating Fields is conducted using our CloudNine platform, click here (requires BrightTalk account, which is free).

As for the internet minute, this updated graphic, once again created by Lori Lewis, illustrates what happens within the internet in a typical minute in 2018.  There are a couple of different categories tracked in this graphic than last year’s, but most are the same.  Once again, the ones that are the same are all up compared to last year – some more than others (is Netflix viewing really up 3 1/2 times more than last year?).

Here is a comparison between 2017 and 2018 (we previously published the graphic for 2016 here):

Once again, I can’t vouch for the accuracy of the numbers, so take them for what it’s worth.  They say a picture says a thousand words, so consider my blog post complete for today!  :o)
