Do you remember the world before the Internet?
Communication had to happen via clumsy fax machines, phone conversations that did not transfer printed data, or heaven-forbid snail mail. The Internet has TRULY changed the world and how we interact within it.

Here are some of the key points of the infographic below:
- 1 minute of Twitter = 100,000 tweets.
- It took 4 months for the fall of Berlin but only 1 week for Egyptians to organize a revolution.
- There is 3.74 degrees of separation with the Internet, 6 without it.
