What stands out to me is the minutes per viewer. Of the 10 sites listed Facebook is second to last with 21.7 minutes per viewer. If you sort that list by the total amount of time spent watching videos - Facebook ranks #8.
Viewers spend over 71 times as long on Google properties. It may be a while before FB catches up.

Stores are now going to have cameras that scan you if you are near the entrance and, using facial recognition, will compare your picture to Facebook and scan your likes to offer you discounts. Part of the process required perfecting facial recog from video and it seems they've done it. Of course they want to be the biggest sharing platform, it's got dollars written all over it in ways beyond display ads.
It's time to rethink just how much of your personal life you display online through wall st backed social networks.

Supermarkets are going to have it also when you walk in the store. Big signs will display "CHARMIN ON SALE AISLE 5". Then you will get text messages of the sales too from the mobile # you provide Facebook.

Ain't nobody gettin' my cell # I really hate that Google has tried several times when logging in. It was actually a bit difficult to get out of the page..took some thought to find the "no thanks" or whatever button. Facebook? Too many apps you have to approve. I don't go near that stuff.
