Hitwise has some new stats that qualify as impressive even by Facebook standards. Mark Zuckerberg's baby accounts for 25% of page views and 10% of Internet visits, notes the Tech Talk blog of CBS. Trailing is Google, with 7% of Internet visits and YouTube with 3%. Those two also combine for 11.7% of page views.

All of which means that "Facebook is gobbling up a lot of what ... Zuckerberg called the vast 'uncharted' territory of the Internet," writes Dan Farber. "It's the transition from the web as a constellation of billions of web pages navigated via search to a human-centered habitat with people filtering the massive expanse of the Internet for each other."
