There’s something about the tech industry that seems to foster rapid and exciting economic growth. Whether it was the Dot-Com boom of the 1990s, or the rise of social media in the 2000s, there always seems to be someone profiting off of technological progress.
The following infographic will show you an amazing contrast. Even companies we think of as being highly profitable, like sports shoe corporations or fast food conglomerates, collect money at a rate that pales in comparison to popular websites and services like Instagram and Twitter. What this suggests, perhaps, is that we as a society are moving more and more towards relying on companies that find unique and productive ways to help make our technology more effective and enjoyable to use on a daily basis.
There’s no better time to get involved in the tech industry in some fashion, as there’s no question that it is (and will continue to be) a highly lucrative field. Perhaps you will be the person to create the next Facebook, YouTube, or Instagram. Who knows, maybe we’ll be adding your company to the infographic below in the future!
