[edit reason] fixed link [/edit]
So, while Amazon's, Ebay's and Wikipedia's changes are probably a result of an update (changes are too sharp), I still wonder why Google's and Facebook's own traffic went slowly down beyond seasonal?
One more thing:
Our rather thin content (very old, well linked, reference pages, a little bit shallow) were hit by 10% - 15% (A few thousand pages)
Our "great" content (new, long, informative, well written articles) were hit by 60% (50 pages)
Isn't that opposite to Panda?
Google may be denying that any kind of updates have been going on however in the last few days one of my major sites has lost 70% of its traffic, my second biggest site 30% and my largest site 50%
How were these sites doing before Penguin?

Some thin content can perform very well.
