The world’s internet population passed the 1bn user mark in December 2008, according to new data from comScore World Metrix, reports eMarketer. comScore’s figure discounts users under the age of 15 and those who go online through internet cafes, mobile phones or PDAs.
In contrast, eMarketer’s own estimate does not discount by age or location and puts the world’s online audience at 1.172bn. eMarketer’s figures also predict that India will eventually overtake Germany, Japan and the US to become the world’s second biggest internet country after China.
