English ‘may not be language of internet’ According to this

article, Mandarin is the most commonly spoken language on the internet at 835 million, followed by English at 470 million, Spanish at 330 million and Hindi at 300 million. “It is true that English has been the predominant language of the internet so far, and it is true that it will always be a major force but as connectivity penetrates deeper into the massive market outside Europe and the US … English will decline in use through this medium.” This will have some interesting implications for international business on the web. So far, people seemed to just assume that English would be the ‘default language’ of the internet.
