In 2006 BitTorrent, or specifically peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing. was king.

In a study from January of that year, P2P traffic accounted for over 70% of all internet traffic. Though, at that time, BitTorrent shared the file sharing crown with other networks, it quickly moved to become the number one file sharing protocol, a title it would hold decisively by 2008, in part due to an incredible period of growth in late 2007/early 2008.

However, even by then cracks were showing in the P2P armor. By late 2007, web traffic had overtaken p2p traffic. This was largely because of the meteoric rise of YouTube.

By 2011, P2P had fallen to under 19% in North America and was beaten by Netflix during peak times. By 2013 that traffic was down to just 7.39 percent and represented a drop not just in percentage, but actual traffic. In 2015, it was estimated to be 3 percent, a percentage that put it on par with Hulu, the fourth most popular video streaming site.

you used to have to torrent everything. Movies, music, porn, video games, computer programs.

Now there are so many free or low cost avenues to all of those things, there is no reason to torrent anything unless you are just straight stealing shit.

This is basically it. I stream 99% of tv and movies these days, and only stream games if they're more than $20 on steam a year after release. Do still pirate albums thought, can't live without DAT FLAC 34 minutes after release.
