/ Data Never Sleeps Hits Double Digits!














Time really flies. It’s hard to believe it, but today Data Never Sleeps turns 10 as we release our latest version of our popular infographic.

Here at Domo on Data we love taking a look at how our collective use of data has changed over time. We took a look at some of the trends last year, and with Data Never Sleeps turning 10 we decided to turn it up a notch.

First up – taking a look at some of the original stats for Data Never Sleeps and comparing them to this years version.

All of the original metrics have increased from year 1 to year 10, but some of them have barely moved while others have skyrocketed. Looking at them as a percentage increase shows this in starker contrast.

The largest increases are associated with sharing of image and video content, while the smallest is email. This certainly makes sense with wider spread of cell phones with better cameras and increased WiFi coverage and cell data plans making it easier to upload content.

Finally, we have updated the dashboard we provided last year that shows some trends on the data over the years. The single data point that jumps out at me is the huge drop-off in Tweets per minute. Could this be a result of the crackdown on bots?
