The state of the Internet shows definite trends that should influence the way people do business online. Email, once the epitome of digital communication, has been swamped by spam. With only about one out of every ten email messages legitimate, there's no wonder it is a dying medium.
Fueled by more affordable registration costs and hosting plans, the number of Web sites and domain names continues to increase, but not as quickly as the number of Internet users.
Social networking continues to rise, but the trend shows a shift away from the United States. Americans represent less than one-third of all Facebook users, suggesting that businesses need to focus on international users when looking for new revenue streams.
Content online is also changing. Although images and photos continue to be hot, the real growth seems to be in online video where six times as many users watch videos than upload them.
Overall, businesses continue to face challenges of applying these Internet statistics to boost their bottom line.
