After my illustrated lecture for the Auckland Photography Festival on the camera artists included in Home AKL, I wondered what are some of the statistics about photos being loaded into major sites on the web daily. 

Photographer Chris Corson-Scott kindly researched this information and here is his report:

Number of photos uploaded to facebook:

per minute: 140,000

per hour: 8,400,000

per day: 201,600,000

Flickr is way behind with:

per minute:  3,500

per hour: 210,000

per day: 5,040,000
