The above infographic was created with the help of data from Internet World Stats and depicts how the dominant language of the Internet will soon shift from English to Chinese. In the past year, China has acquired a whopping 36 million new internet users, tipping the grand total to over 440 million users. With China’s steadily increasing growth, English may soon be dethroned as the most widely used language on the internet in possibly less than five years.
