The zeitgeist 2010 (or the world according to google)

Periodically it is worth checking out the Google Zeitgeist page to see what people in the world or in your country are searching for on Google.  This year Google have made a video to show what was trending in 2010.  Makes interesting, and if you are me slightly cynical viewing.  Great product placement guys.  We are being shown all the cool google toys, with the exception of android, which is Google’s product.  Android not trending in 2010, well no it wasn’t.

Head over to the page to check the trends (Chatroullette. was the number one fastest rising this year)  but watch the video below for the most popular.

What did New Zealanders search for?  “Kiwis had a broad range of interests this year, focusing on sport, with searches for FIFA; music, with Justin Bieber and YouTube music; and entertainment, with Chatroulette and Avatar. A more sombre and focus, too, took over in September, with searches on the devastating Christchurch earthquake.” from the NZ trends page.
