Total number of Internet users: ~2.5 billion
If you've ever wondered how many people use the Internet out of the 7+ billion human beings inhabiting the earth, the estimate in December 2011 was 2,267,233,742. Suffice it to say, those numbers have certainly gone up over the course of the past 8 months, which would now put the number even closer to 2.5 billion (if not exceeding it, possibly).
As you can see from the graph above, Asia has the most users on the Internet, with twice as many users as the second-most Internet-populous continent, Europe; and four times as many users as the third-most Internet-populous continent, North America!
