How The Internet (And Social Media) Has Changed The World [INFOGRAPHIC]

Did you know that there are now close to two and a half billion internet users across the planet, a rise of more than 500 percent since the year 2000?

And as the number of users grows, the internet changes accordingly – and so does the world.

In these heady, modern times, and thanks to the rise of empowering social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook, you can do – and be – anything you like on the internet. All of which has led to global change, huge shifts in ideologies and an ongoing rethink in how we absorb and process information – and what this might mean for the future.
