All indicators were headed to this new headline that as 2010 ends Facebook overtook Google as the most popular Internet site. Experian Hitwise reported that “8.9 percent of unique online visits were to Facebook this year, compared with Google’s 7.2 percent,” and ComScore estimates that Facebook would “surpass Google for the first time in number of pages viewed.” Of course these details are not much of surprise given that Facebook collected more than $200 billion in revenue in 2010 which was more than double its 2009 revenue. But other measures such as top Buzzed Sites lists YouTube as #1 and Facebook as #6…. So I guess this reinforces my father’s view of statistics…. Which is there are three types of liars – #1 Liars, #2 Damn Liars, and #3 Statisticians!
