How Many Photos Were Taken Last Year?
2017 was an amazing year, and we took a lot of photos - about 7.5 trillion, in fact. To reach this number, we broke down the information available to us and did some careful analysis. Photos taken is defined as any picture snapped, including those that are immediately deleted. That's why this number may seem high at first - we often forget about every picture we take and only consider those that we store and share.
We also looked into what we really care about - what exactly we're taking pictures of. It may not surprise you that most of the pictures taken are of ourselves and our loved ones. Take a look at this info graphic summarizing our findings for more interesting facts! And enjoy capturing your memories this year - we expect to see even more photos taken in 2018!
