Earlier this year, Cisco forecasted how large the world’s Internet-using population would be by the year 2017.  The data was quite staggering.  The global online user population is forecasted to grow from 2.3 billion people in 2012 (32% of the world’s 7.2 billion population) to 3.5 billion people by 2017 (48% of the world’s 7.6 billion population).
