[Stats] How Many Photos Have Ever Been Taken?
Try wrapping your head around these statistics. Approximately 3.5 trillion photos have been taken since Daguerre captured Boulevard du Temple 174 years ago. The global photo count is rising swiftly due to the accessibility of digital cameras and camera phones. Today, more pictures are taken every two minutes than were taken throughout the 1800s. It is estimated that ten percent of all photos ever taken were taken in the last twelve months. Approximately 140 billion photos have been uploaded to Facebook; that’s 10,000 times the number of photos in the Library of Congress. Unbelievable!
