Facebook hosts 4% of all the photos EVER TAKEN IN THE WORLD

Gerald Lynch Facebook, Tech Digest news 3 Comments

Facebook-photos-archive.jpgHere’s a pretty mad statistic; according to photo sharing site 1000memories.com, Facebook now host 4% of all the photographs ever taken. EVER.

That equates to an estimated 140 billion photos of the 3.5 trillion thought to have been taken since Joseph Nicéphore Niépce first introduced the image capturing device in 1826. Incredibly, 70 billion of those photos were uploaded this year alone, showing just how quickly the rise of smartphones and ever-more-affordable digital cameras are increasing our photo-sharing habits.

As shown by the infographic above, Facebook’s online photo collection, though not entirely public, completely overshadows the likes of Instagram and Flickr, and is a massive 10,000 times larger than the Library of Congress collection.

With 750 million+ active Facebook users, many of those uploading hundreds of photos on a regular basis, the collection is set to grow exponentially in the coming years.
