2 billion people on the internet

2 billion... that's a 2 followed by 9 zeroes, or 2,000,000,000. That is the number of people that will be on the internet worldwide by the end of the year, according to a report from the International Telecommunication Union. That makes it 226 million new users this year, and doubles the number from 5 years ago. With a world population estimated to be around 6.876 billion, that is about 30% of the world's population is online.

Breaking it down into regions, the number of people in Europe that are online is around 65%. 55% for the Americas, 22% of Asia and a little under 10% for Africa.

Just think... your website has the potential to be seen by 2 billion people worldwide. And the number is only increasing.
