Sorry, the misuse of the word "literally" is a pet peeve of mine... :-)
It's not a misuse; evidently it's a new use.

The Oxford English Dictonary, since September of 2011 has included this definition of literally:

"Used for emphasis or to express strong feeling while not being literally true: I have received literally thousands of letters.'"
Then it's a new misuse.

But that's a topic for a Grammar Nazi thread.
