Internet users reach two billion mark

The number of Internet users worldwide has reached the two billion mark, the head of the UN’s telecommunications agency, Hamadoun Toure, said. “At the beginning of the year 2000 there only 500 million mobile subscriptions globally and 250 million Internet users,” he said. “By the beginning of this year 2011 those numbers have mushroomed to over five billion mobile users and two billion subscribers to the Internet,” Toure added. This is no surprise since our work, love and social lives are now lived on the Internet. We will soon be going on Facebook to talk to our own kids in the other room.
