Not only are we creating more data, but we're creating more ways to create more data. Whew!

"Our third infographic installment reveals astonishing leaps in digital consumption," Josh James, CEO and chairman of the board at Domo, wrote in the company blog. "Since 2013, the global internet population grew nearly 20 percent – from 2.4 billion to 3.2 billion people… Vine, for example, didn't even exist when we released our first infographic.
