I guess, it depends on whether these words are connected to non-tangible or tangible, eg. 'everyone thinks so', compared to 'everybody in this street has a car''

Also, 'everyone' has a connotaition of 'vague all' to it, as 'everybody' is stronger, as if counting every individual in 'all'.

But anyhow, there is nearly no difference between these two words...
