Interesting article: We spent six years scouring billions of links, and found the web is both expanding and shrinking
A couple of tidbits I found particularly noteworthy:
- A decade ago, there was a much greater variety of domains within links posted by users of Reddit, with more than 20 different domains for every 100 random links users posted. Now there are only about five different domains for every 100 links posted.
- …while almost 40% of the domains created 2006 were active five years on, only a little more than 3% of those created in 2015 remain active today.
