The one thing Steve Jobs did better than anyone else was, he focused on one thing to do better than anyone else.
The iPod made getting music into your pocket dead simple. The iMac made getting on the Internet really easy. The iPhone made putting the Internet, your phone, movies and music in your pocket a breeze.
Apple isn’t a computer, software or mobile phone company. Or rather, it is, but that’s not what they do. What they do is this. They figure out what people want, and then they do it better than anyone else does.
Don’t know about you, but for many people – me included – over the past few years, the Internet has become such an integral part of our lives, it’s impossible to imagine our daily work and leisure-time without it.
We use it to search for information, check our email, buy the things we want, talk to our friends on Facebook and Twitter, even to make phone calls, and a hundred other ways to make money, spend money and have fun.
And because the Internet has become so useful to us all, in our busy, modern lives, it has grown incredibly quickly. It just keeps getting bigger and better at delivering on the reason why it came into existence in the first place, and that’s its ability to help us communicate and learn. Two things, which it turns out, are at the heart of Social Networking and therefore online marketing too.
This new infographic from www.onlineschools.org shows us just how quickly the Internet has grown, as well as some of the most popular services, plus loads more details, country by country – the rate new users and websites are being added, who’s winning the race for Internet domination, what different ages, genders and what types of activity we use the Internet for.
