The UN releases “The State of Broadband 2015: Broadband as a Foundation for Sustainable Development”  report demonstrating that despite there being 7,100 languages in use globally, only 500 languages are used online. Google search supports 348, Wikipedia 290, Facebook 80 and Twitter 28. Whilst these numbers have increased in recent years, they now appear to be plateauing. The report suggests that it is possible that in terms of quantity of languages the Internet is reaching a saturation point.
