Domo’s Latest ‘Data Never Sleeps’ Infographic – Just How Much Data Are We Generating Now?

Staff report

Domo – a cloud software company based in Utah – has released the seventh annual iteration of its popular “Data Never Sleeps” infographic. The infographic, which was introduced in 2013, highlights the scale of global data by presenting the amount of data generated every minute on popular apps and social media platforms like Instagram, Twitter, Twitch, and Tinder.

The numbers – as always – are staggering. The infographic shows that almost 700,000 aggregate hours of Netflix are watched every minute – an increase, Domo says, of 614 percent over last year’s report. Similarly, the report saw a 21 percent increase in use of Tinder and a 12 percent increase in photos shared per minute on Instagram.

“Year over year, the variety and velocity of data generated from new applications and internet-based services provide an interesting view on how technology continues to change the ways in which we communicate, collaborate and build community,” said Josh James, founder and CEO of Domo. “While the popularity of underlying applications may change over time, the desire for technology to improve our lives remains constant.”
