might be a question worth qualifying first :

- define largest: quantity / filesize of content? number of unique visitors? and so forth...
- define content provider : what sort of content? media files? hosting services? and so forth...

bradi: Curious what people think...


What people think or facts?

Facts will be hard - those kinds of numbers are closely guarded.

You'd probably want to qualify what you mean by content provider too. If you mean companies that host and distribute content, then Akamai probably takes the cake (or possibly Google - Youtube is big bikkies) but if you mean companies that actually produce content, it gets a whole lot harder.

YES! <g>

khull: might be a question worth qualifying first :

OK...

largest : most amount of content
content provider : providing content on the Internet

fritasm: What people think or facts?

Facts will be hard - those kinds of numbers are closely guarded.

Your personal view / opinion

I think the idea that porn makes up some vast amount of the internet is largely a myth
(it's big, for sure, but still a very small fraction of overall traffic)

"Political correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."

You (or specifically everyone that uploads, posts, comments, likes, tweets, has a website or blog or any sort of online presence).

You are the Internet.
