tracked by whom exactly?

The web sites themselves, analytics (such as Google), ISPs, back haul carries, Internet router manufacturers etc....  It's not personal information but rather generic info (browser, OS, protocols).

each website may be tracking your presence with cookies, but there's no way you can gather the metadata of which tab any random person has active at any given time. much less compile it to the degree you're able to track bulk flow of data as it was done in this case.

hmm, seems to be a bit of a misleading title. Makes it sound like 15% of internet users use Netflix or that 15% of time spent on the internet is on Netflix or something but the stats are only for mbs of data which is completely different. It would be nice if things could be labelled accurately rather than twisted to make things sound better or worse than they actually are, but with humanity the way it is there's not much chance of that ever happening

Yo is this a joke or for real?

And I also said the data can come from stuff like Google Analytics, ISPs, back haul carriers, backbone router manufacturers, etc...



Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."

I wonder if that number would be if we didn't have forced install that make people go digital and updates. Honestly speaking nothing against Sony for that notion, since it is really third parties that abuse the update size and file size.



 

I think that it's more surprising that Netflix has more traffic than porn.

Wow. How in the world is Valve/Steam not in this?

Good question.
But the stats for Steam are here anyway: https://store.steampowered.com/stats/content/

The biggest PC games are split between other services and the China base goes through their own services. I would expect them to be very close behind.

Steam has more than twice the active users than there are Playstation 4 consoles sold though.

i wonder why...

I thought steam monthly active users is around 60-70mil and PS active userbase is around 80mil

I'm not entirely sure. I mean "HTTP Media Stream" and "Others" could account for a ton of porn.
