Potpouri of New Numbers: Facebook, Twitter, WordPress & Boredom

The earth moved yesterday along the East Coast … and released a flood of new data about the tubes and pipes medium.

  • Facebook now ranks as the third largest video site, after only Google/YouTube and VEVO, according to comScore.

  • Facebook and Twitter both broke traffic records in July, again according to comScore but reported by TechCrunch.
  • Facebook chalked up 1 trillion (1,000,000,000,000) pageviews in July, according to Mashable reporting on Hitwise statistics.
  • WordPress now powers 14.7% of the top 1 million Web sites and 22 out of 100 new active sites, according to its State of the Word report.
  • And yet … 31% of younger, more mobile social media users claim they are getting bored with it all. That’s from Gartner.
  • Yep, Global Web Index claims that a number of Facebook activities actually declined from June to July, according to Mashable.

    That ought to give you something to gnaw on. Let me know when you get it all figured out.
