Every year Google reveals a list of the most popular terms searched for over the course of the year. The list of 2011 is broken up into a number of categories and contains some interesting results.
So what have Chileans been searching for this year? Among some the most popular Chilean searches are the Copa Ámerica, Los Wachiturros, and the increasingly popular game, Angry Birds. While Cancún, Aruba, Riviera Maya, Punta Cana, Barbados, and Santo Domingo are this year’s vacation destinations for Chileans, Emma Watson, Kim Kardashian, and Scarlett Johansson seem to be the favorites in terms of celebrities.
On a sadder note, the searches for the two plane crashes in early September as well as for Felipe Camiroaga, Roberto Bruce, and Amy Winehouse also are at the top of the list of Chilean searches after their deaths this year.
This year’s “most searched term award” of the ENTIRE WORLD goes to the 14-year-old singer, Rebecca Black. Although she has received an overwhelming amount of online attention, I doubt the majority of the searches were made in order to enjoy her “invigorating” composition, Friday.
