How Has the Internet Changed in the Last 5 Years?

Ever find yourself wondering who is actually using the internet, and what they look at? Mary Meeker, a partner at the venture-capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, is known for her big Internet trends reports. Her latest, displayed in the slideshow below, looks at the Internet today, with an eye to the global economic downturn, the rise of mobile, and the rise of China -- the number of new Internet users in China in the last three years exceeds the total number of users in the U.S.

Meeker's presentation was a highlight of the Web 2.0 Summit, a conference of the tech industry's leading thinkers this week in San Francisco. Senior Editor Derek Thompson has a breakdown of some of the economic implications of Meeker's findings up on the Business Channel, and below you can find the report in its entirety.
