Presenting Pingdom’s multi-user log in

multi-user log inThe brand new Team plan, introduced just a short while ago, is meant for customers that require more of everything. If you have considerable website monitoring needs, it’s the plan for you. You can monitor up to 500 sites or transactions, tag checks making it possible to filter and sort all your checks, the possibility of paying by invoice, and much more. Like all other Pingdom plans, it also includes Real User Monitoring

One of the most sought after features we added to the Team plan is multi-user log in. Now you can have multiple users per account and control what each user should be able to do, including access to subscription and billing information, the ability to edit checks, etc. Let’s take a closer look at what multi-user log in can do for you and what you can do with it.

Following a similar report from last year we now have new and interesting facts that can tell you who reads the world’s top blogs.

The world now has a population of over 7 billion, and there are around 4 billion IP addresses allocated across the globe. With estimated 2.3 billion Internet users, that leaves almost two IP addresses per user.

How are these IP addresses distributed throughout the countries around the world, and what’s the spread of IP addresses per capita? We go deep and attempt to answer those questions and more.

music downloadingMusicmetric, an online music analytics firm, has published a report, which it claims to be “the most in-depth study ever of the global digital music landscape.” In the report, we find a list of the 10 countries in the world where the most music has been illegally downloaded during the first half of 2012.

But the report only lists total downloads. What happens if we, instead, put the number of downloads in relation to the size of the population and the number of Internet users?

Commodore 64

On August 1, the classic Commodore 64 computer turned 30 years old. That’s a long time in the world of technology, but the C64 has turned into the little computer that could, with lots of people still using it, websites dedicated to it, and more.

We wanted to pay our own respects to the Commodore 64 as well as all the dedicated users that have used the computer over the years. So we rounded up a number of photos of the C64.

The really cool thing is that these are all photos taken way back when it actually happened, when the Commodore 64 was new, in the 1980s.

Facebook’s amazing growth potential

Facebook

Earlier this week we studied what countries around the world had lost and gained the most Facebook users over the past 6 months. With Facebook going public today, we thought we’d take a quick look at where the social network has the greatest potential for growth.

So we posed this question: what if Facebook had the same penetration in Africa and Asia as it does in Europe and North America? How many users would the social network have then?

The numbers are pretty staggering.

Top 10 Facebook winners and losers (countries)

Facebook likeThe juggernaut that is Facebook is quickly approaching 1 billion users, so the social network is growing at a rapid pace overall.

But if we look at some of the latest figures available, it would seem that Zuckerberg’s creation is not gaining users in every corner of the world.

In fact, in one country, Facebook has lost 16% of its users over the last six months, the equivalent of over 200,000 users. But in another country, Facebook has gained almost 17 million users over the same period.

What countries are we talking about, you ask? Read on and we’ll tell you.

IRC is dead, long live IRC

IRCIRC (Internet Relay Chat) has been around since 1988, which makes it ancient in Internet terms. And although it’s still used by hundreds of thousands of users around the world, IRC has seen a dramatic downturn in usage.

We have talked to the creator of IRC, and others, about why the once so widely used technology has seemingly fallen out of favor with so many users.

Call it Facebook Addiction Disorder, Facebook Anxiety Disorder, Facebook depression, or Facebook unhappiness, we have all heard of issues of well-being related to people using the social network too much.

And with visitors during January 2012 spending on average 405 minutes on Facebook.com, is there any wonder that a new study suggests that using Facebook spreads unhappiness and a large portion of users on the site feel bad if they can’t log in regularly?

So with Facebook predicted to reach 1 billion users this year, are we putting too much of our lives in Zuckerberg’s creation?
