If we reply, are you just going to tell us how we're wrong?

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.

Made me LOL :) - best answer yet IMHO

kyanar: If we reply, are you just going to tell us how we're wrong?

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

Like it ;) Does YouTube provide content?  Does Google?  Does Apple?...

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)

The pirate bay.




When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

 


My thoughts are my own and are in no way representative of my employer.

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.
