A few months ago I posted here an article featuring 40 maps to teach students about Internet. The same creator of these maps, Vox, has recently released a set of 22 wonderful visualizations that contain some interesting facts. Some of these facts is really mind blowing ( e.g facts number 2 and 3) and is really worth having a looking at. I spent sometime today leafing through these visualizations and thought you might find them interesting as well.

Here is a quick round of up of these 22 facts, check out Vox original article to see the visualization.
