Infographic: If you printed Facebook

Online cartridge retailer Cartridge Save has unveiled an infographic looking at the amount of paper that would be needed to print all the status updates on Facebook.

The figures were gained from research by 2,102 people on how often they update their Facebook status. 62% of respondents replied that they updated their status once a day, and 56% said that the average length of their status is two lines.

Cartridge Save also found that 11.5 billion sheets of paper would be needed to print every status update for one year, and if these updates were printed in black and white, using an average HP Inkjet printer, the ink would cost more than £147 million .
