The Most Fascinating Charts From an Epic Slideshow of Internet Trends


Every year, Mary Meeker and the team from KPCB unleash upon the world the mother of all slideshows, which aims to sum up The State of the Internet. This year's behemoth was born this morning, weighing in at 117 pages. Here are the 12 most interesting pages. Check out the full report here.

(1) America's Media Attention in 1 Graph. Americans spend just six percent of their media diet with print, but those pages attract 23 percent of all ad spending. In mobile, the trend is the polar opposite. I don't know if this is worse news for the print industry (where you'd think ad spending has a long way to fall) or Facebook (since monetizing mobile attention is so devilishly difficult.)
