How long will data on the internet survive?

I think all data on the internet will exist 100s or even 1000s of years and future descendants can look what we did in 2013 etc.
“One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don't throw it away.”

Depends how much the data is shared & if the data is open or restricted. Open websites will likely last forever on projects like the internet archive, but unshared restricted content will not (password protected). The archived data isn't going to go anywhere, space won't be an issue because storage will just get cheaper.
Assuming peace & no major natural disaster it will last perhaps hundreds of years, but most of the data will never be accessed ever again...
