  1. I will be honest, the only one that surprised me was the 13,000 hours of music on Pandora. In a single minute that would mean that a whole lotta people are listening to Pandora (shouldn’t we be working)….

    I love infographics – picture says a thousand words. The one stat that surprised me is Craigslist. Only 1200 new ads posted every 60 seconds? Really? Assuming we’re including only the 10 top cities/ regions in the U – that’s 120 new ads per city. I would imagine 120 new ads easily fill up the 10+ categories under “For Sale” in a wink, not to mention all the other categories. (Be interesting to know what Craigslist’s stats are)

    1. Jeff Hurt says:

      Yeah, that was a shock to me as well. I expected the number in Craigslist to be higher.

      Thanks for reading and commenting too.

  3. Sadly, very few of these actions are actually “productive”.

  4. MacMyDay says:

    How about Wikipedia entries?
