    Most surprising: that if Facebook were a country, it’d be the 3rd largest, almost as big as second-placed India!

    Most interesting: that 1/5th of all Google searches are new. Which, from an internet marketers perspective, means that new keywords are cropping up every single day! (which of course means that there’s an opportunity to rank for keywords/phrases that virtually have little to no competition right now!)
