Did You Know... Facebook Is Eating The Internet?

Henry Blodget runs down some fairly startling Facebook facts over at the Business Insider.

According to his article, Facebook now has:

570 billion pageviews a month
8X as many pageviews as the No. 2 site in Google's list of the top 1000 web sites in the world (Yahoo)
15X as many as MSN (39 billion).
72X as many as Wikipedia (7.9 billion)

He ends this rant with a provocative question: "Anyone still think the recent privacy fracas means anything at all?"

So, to follow Blodget's logic, because Facebook has lots of page views, they don't have to respect their users privacy? That's almost a "might makes right" argument, which is less than convincing.
