One Billion Global Internet Users Milestone Broken

Posted: 27th Jan, 2009 By: MarkJ
Internet information provider comScore has revealed that the total global Internet audience (age 15 and older from home and work computers) surpassed 1,007,730,000 visitors in December 2008! The Asia-Pacific region accounted for the highest share of global Internet users at 41%, followed by Europe (28%), North America (18%), Latin-America (7%), and the Middle East & Africa (5%):

“Surpassing one billion global users is a significant landmark in the history of the Internet,” said Magid Abraham, President and Chief Executive Officer, comScore, Inc.

“It is a monument to the increasingly unified global community in which we live and reminds us that the world truly is becoming more flat. The second billion will be online before we know it, and the third billion will arrive even faster than that.”

China represented the largest online audience in the world in December 2008 with 180m Internet users, representing 17.8% of the total worldwide Internet audience, followed by the U.S. (16.2%), Japan (6.0%), Germany (3.7%) and the U.K. (3.6%).

The most popular website in the world was Google (777.9m visitors), followed by Microsoft Sites (647.9m), Yahoo! Sites (562.6m). Facebook.com, which has grown a dramatic 127% in the past year to 222m visitors, now ranks as the top social networking site worldwide and the seventh most popular property in the world.
