Borderless Is Beautiful

Did you know that by the end of 2011, the worldwide number of Internet users had grown to more than 2.27 BILLION people—nearly 40% of ALL the people on the planet?! Did you also know that mobile consumer spending alone is expected to grow 13.4% in 2012 to reach $138 billion in global sales? With statistics like that, the future of commerce certainly seems to belong online!
And while the U.S leads the pack as of December '11 for the percentage of its population online (78.6%), the United States constitutes only 12% (and shrinking) of Web surfers worldwide.
Where the major growth is occurring is in the world's most populous countries, such as China, India, Brazil, Russia and Indonesia. In fact, the Asian continent ranks first worldwide for the number of Internet users—more than 1BILLION and growing. And they're just getting started!
Then there's Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America that since 2000 have witnessed what can only be described as a phenomenal increase of online users: a cumulative, 11-year 2,988.4%, 2,244.8 %, and 1,205.1% growth rate, respectively!
