Information Generated Every Day

The amount of information we have today is staggering.

Each day on Earth, we generate 500 million tweets, 294 billion emails, 4 million gigabytes of Facebook data, 65 billion WhatsApp messages, and 720,000 hours of new content added daily on YouTube.

The total amount of data created, captured, copied, and consumed in the world was 59 zettabytes in 2020.

One zettabyte is 8,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 bits.

Proving that information has mass through physical experiments is the first step toward finding a possible solution to the problem of explosive information growth.
