Internet Usage Predictions For 2012 [Infographic]

internet-usage-2012-predictions-infographic

If you are an every day developer for the Internet, it is always important to stay on top of the trends when it comes to what is going on and what is going to be the next big thing. It is of course almost impossible to know exactly what will be the next success, but that doesn’t keep us from predicting it. Usually this works to at least stay in the path of what is coming and not completely put us going an opposite direction. There is a lot of data from last year that can help us point our feet in the right direction. It’s just a matter of putting it all together and crunching the numbers. The result should be somewhat of a road map for 2012, and where Internet usage might be heading.

That is exactly what the people over at Slots of Vegas have done. They took their findings and created a fresh and quite interesting infographic. It’s a voyage through the different areas of the Internet, and the predictions are quite clear. Internet usage isn’t about to get any less important. As a matter of fact, it’s going to increase by quite a lot. Online gaming, in particular, is going to become even more widespread. Games we have only seen on consoles and computers before will spring to life entirely powered by the servers on the Internet.

A negative aspect of it all is that they predict that 51% of the users on the Internet will suffer from e-anxiety. It’s a particularly nasty experience which origin lies in the inability to check one’s email or Facebook profile. The Internet has become so widespread today that if we are not able to check our services or pages, we get stressed out to the point where we will actually get physically sick. But, there are of course more positives than negatives when it comes to increased Internet usage. For example, the long term effect of this is that more and more people will be able to do their work from home. Well, if that is good or not depends on your ability to stay focused I guess.
