Infographic: Millions Left Behind By The Internet Revolution

by


The Internet has been one of the greatest drivers of globalization, keeping people all over the world connected. But do we know how many have been excluded and falling through the cracks of the digital divide?

Remember the recent outcry over SOPA, and how millions were affected by Wikipedia’s 24 hour protest blackout? What about last year’s Occupy Movement, which was successfully organised with information disseminated efficiently via the Internet?

Events like this remind us of how the Internet is ingrained into our daily lives, and how we take technology for granted. However, millions have been left behind by and disadvantaged the Internet Revolution, further deepening social divides.
