We’re in a new world of information overload, where everything you read, see, and hear is being digitized, digitized in real time, and shared across a vast number of platforms, so you’re missing out on some of the most precious information in the world.
This week, we spoke with three experts to find out how much you really know about all that information.
The experts we spoke to had extensive experience in the field of information and were able to give us their best estimates of how much knowledge we should be adding to our own.
The results were quite different than what we would expect.
“I would say that I think the average person knows about 2,500 words,” said Andrew Nesmith, cofounder and CEO of the online marketing platform Content Marketing Institute.
“I think people know around 1,500.
I think that’s a pretty good number, but I think it depends on your perspective.”
Nesmith also said that the average amount of knowledge about information on the internet is around 1.8 billion words.
That’s a lot of words.
Nessmith said he thinks the average internet user has roughly 10,000 words on their website, and that’s probably a conservative estimate.
That means if we were to take the average number of words of all information that people have in their inbox, we’d probably have around 6.8 million.
Nelsmith also mentioned that the median number of people who know about information is around 50, and said that most people can’t handle 50,000, so they probably don’t have as much information as we do.
In our interview, Nessmith suggested that the number of articles on the web is around 400 million words.
This is an enormous amount of information, and it’s also going to change over time.
Nilsmith also pointed out that the information you read on the Internet can be accessed in a number of ways.
In a video he shared on YouTube, he said that there are thousands of ways to consume information, including video, podcast, and even blogs.
He added that you can access all kinds of information in any of these ways, but that’s because people have access to these sources all the time.
“There’s a good chance that people can consume a lot more information on their own,” Nes Smith said.
“You can just go to the Internet and you can have a blog.
You can have all of your content that you want on your blog.
And if you have a personal website, you can actually do all of that.
And then there’s all of these social media platforms that people are starting to use, which has really opened up the whole market for content creators.”
Narsmith also added that the amount of online information is going to be increasing.
“You’re going to see more content in the future,” Narsmith said.
“And that will also be more difficult for the average individual.
You’re going have to pay a lot to access that content, so it’s going to have to be more expensive.”
The experts agreed that the data is not going to continue to increase in the near future, but said that it’s probably going to increase at a faster rate.
“People are going to find that the best way to keep up with the information is to have a daily email,” Nils Smith said, adding that this will increase the number and complexity of sources and the quality of the information that you find on the Web.
“That’s what people will probably have to get used to, that this information is all going to become more and more aggregated,” Nelsmith added.
“And people are going not just going to get information that they want, but they’re going see a lot less of it.”
Nels Smith also said it’s not clear how much of that information will be in the form of articles.
He pointed out there are many other sources of information out there, like YouTube, that may not be that interesting.
“In the long term, I think you’re going be able to get a lot out of that,” Nors Smith said of a more information-centric approach.
“The more you have access, the more you can use it.”
