Internet World Stats has released new information on internet usage through the end of 2008. The number of users in South America grew more than anywhere else, 65%, and has reached almost 129 million. The number of Asians online increased by almost 140 million last year to 650+ million, but 83% of the population is still not online.
The U.S. Census Bureau calculates the global population to be slightly above 6.7 billion, which means that 23.5% of the world's population is online. Future growth will come from Asia, South America, the Middle East, the Caribbean, and Africa. Will your website be ready?
