In An Internet Minute
Every year or so I’ll come across an infographic wheel like this showing how many times Americans do whatever activity online. The image below is an updated version for 2018.
Interestingly there’s no slice of the pie for songs streamed per minute. So I did a little napkin math to determine how many songs Pandora, the largest streamer in the US, plays every minute. Based on Pandora’s reported time spent listening of 4.96B hours during Q1’18, and assuming an average song length of 3:30, I’ve calculated that Pandora is playing 656,000 songs every minute in the US. Talk about making the most out of 60 seconds!
