You’re a user of social media, right? Have you ever given any thought to how much content you process each day?

No? Well, consider this. About two-thirds of the information that we digest on social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook is text – tweets, of course, plus links to new stories, articles and so on. The rest is images, videos and music.

And it all adds up. How much? Studies have shown that your typical social media user consumes 285 pieces of content daily, which equates to an eye-opening 54,000 words, and, for the truly active, as many as 1,000 clickable links.

Or, if visuals are more your thing, 443 minutes of video.
