7 Shocking Stats & Trends About The Internet – Infographic

What did I find pretty impressive?

The staggering numbers at Alibaba.

Snapchat the runner up, now also on your watchlist?

My Opinion?
What I find shocking in my daily experiences? How ignorant decision people can be when it comes to adapting to the internet and other emerging technologies. So extremely risk averse.

Take for example the so many agencies and brands: They are like record labels. They know it is coming, but are worried about the ROI. To next discover that they should have jumped 5 years ago.

Many are now boiling frogs, a few dead men walking. My tip for the day?

Short term changes can be heavily overrated, but long term trends we tend to underestimate heavily.

Stay on top of the trends. Lead, don’t follow.
