The Exponential Growth of the Visual Web [INFOGRAPHIC]

The Internet is constantly changing and evolving alongside human demand and technological growth. From first public availability in 1994 to now, we've seen a major transformation from text-based to graphic-based design... and it looks like the visual web trend is here to stay and will rule the next web world. Let's take a look below infographic by ON team to see how visually oriented content has exploded in the past few years, why it works - and the future of the visual web.

The Exponential Growth of The Visual Web

infographic highlights

Flickr Hit 8 Billion photos hosted in May 2013.

Pinterest has grown exponentially with 1,047% increase in the number of unique visitors.

Imgur is one of the top 30 most trafficked websites in the U.S alongside IMDb, Apple.com, Yelp, Netflix and AOL according to alexa.

Visual search is already changing the way we search the web, and photo sharing websites could be easily poised to become the best amateur and professional photography sharing app and marketplace on the web. One thing is clear: the visual web has made an indelible mark on the history of Internet use.

    Well, @hotdogsocial V, I didn't design this. The infographic above is the creation of ON team (http://blog.on.com/the-visual-web/). By the way it takes between 3 to 10 days to complete an infographic. If I design this, maybe I take 8 days to complete this.

    We love this! We were thinking of adding an infographic section on our blog but being able to come up with unique infographics seems to be VERY labor intensive. How long did it take for you to complete that one?
