Revealing stat of the day: 22 percent of web pages contain Facebook URLs. At this point, in other words, more than a fifth of all web pages in the world — 242 million of 1.3 billion — reference the Mark Zuckerberg Production.
This is per an analysis conducted by the researcher Matthew Berk, who used data for the project gathered by Common Crawl, a Google-type web-crawling tool. The data accounted for the nearly 1.3 billion URLs the tool has crawled so far in 2012.

I agree with Hunter in the update that opening a folder is easier than opening a cluttered and often slow app. But I also agree with Josh that Apple’s folder design could use some work.
Because the icons in folders are so tiny, they all basically look the same and I’m forced to search to remember what I put where (not the worst option, but still). A better option may be to let you select four key app icon images to equally fill the folder square (think something like the “Key Photo” in iPhoto, but more than one so it’s clear that it isn’t just that app). Or maybe it could cycle through the app icons in the folder slowly while maintaining the outer gray ring to show that it’s a folder and not the app…
Not sure what the right answer is.

What Happens in an Internet Minute
In just one minute, more than 204 million emails are sent. Amazon rings up about $83,000 in sales. Around 20 million photos are viewed and 3,000 uploaded on Flickr. At least 6 million Facebook pages are viewed around the world. And more than 61,000 hours of music are played on Pandora while more than 1.3 million video clips are watched on YouTube.
All in all, that’s 625 terabytes of information sloshing about the tubes each minute.
Whoa. That is all. Whoa. -Savy
Musicplayr is still in closed private beta, but here’s how you can get access today. You can email the good people behind it, using firstname.lastname@example.org – the first 200 will be given priority access. Alternatively, you can tweet the hashtag #inviteme to @musicplayr_com, or post something (fun) on its Facebook Page. (via Musicplayr: A Simple App for Saving Your Web Music)
Privacy advocates say that, for now, it is legal for a prospective employer, during a job interview, to insist that you log into your Facebook page and then click through your “friends only” posts, photos and messages.

So Facebook launches a fairly big iPhone app update to give everyone the new sharing options. But they don’t remove Places as they previously stated they would (they said it would be replaced by a new “Nearby” area). They also apparently removed the iPad code hidden in the app.
They wanted to get this update out there quickly to give mobile users the new, improved sharing options. Perhaps the Places -> Nearby transition wasn’t ready to go just yet. Instead, maybe that will come in version 4 at f8 in a few weeks. Version 4 could also be Universal, meaning it will house the iPad version as well.
