I don’t know much about you, dear reader, but since you’re reading this, I can assume we have this in common: We’re both regular website users and infographic viewers.
The internet is increasingly becoming the platform of choice, and the most high traffic sites have our rapt attention. Of course, it’s no surprise that sites like Google are popular among everyone. But did you know that YouTube is actually more popular than Facebook and Amazon?
This infographic shows the top 100 websites around the world. The most popular sites go from the outer circle in. Fascinatingly enough, we also get to see which popular sites are owned by the same company. For example, Facebook and Instagram are both under Facebook Inc., while Amazon owns sites ranging from IMDb to The Washington Post.
It’s likely that you’ll see some sites you don’t frequent on the list, as they span a number of categories. Everything from sports to technology to porn is represented on this graph.
I’ve definitely picked up a few ideas for sites to check out thanks to this post. I’m sure you will, too.
We know the most popular websites in the world, but where in the world are people accessing the Internet? Our post on the world’s Internet usage will give you an idea of which countries frequent the World Wide Web most often.
