I just stumbled upon these numbers at the Desiring God website.
“The population of the world just crossed the seven-billion mark. There are currently an estimated 2.26 billion Internet users worldwide — one billion of which are from Asia, and only 273 million of which are from North America.
Here’s the current breakdown for Internet use globally:
Asia: 1 billion Web users (26% penetration)
Europe: 500 million Web users (61.3% penetration)
North America: 273 million Web users (78.6% penetration)
Latin America: 235 million Web users (39.5% penetration)
Africa: 139 million Web users (13.5% penetration)
Middle East: 77 million Web users (35% penetration)
Australia: 23 million Web users (67% penetration)
Sources: Nielsen Online, UN International Telecommunications Union, GfK, local Regulators and other reliable sources.”
I’m willing to bet most American websites are oblivious to the other (majority) “World Wide Web”.
What does this tell us?
