OK if you're into current events and you're not all over this it is a great end of term / year reflection video. Mashable writer Lauren Indivik explained how the video data was gathered:


How the World Googled in 2010

Shortly after Yahoo released its list of the year’s top searchesGoogleGoogle has announced the results of its annual zeitgeist report, revealing the most popular search terms of 2010 by region and worldwide.

The search giant analyzed billions of searches performed in 2010 and compared them with searches from 2009 to surface emerging trends. Chatroulette, the iPad and Justin Bieber were the three fastest-rising search terms in 2010; TwitterTwitter and FacebookFacebook also made the list, at numbers eight and 10, respectively.

Among the items of interest that lost the world’s attention in 2010 were swine flu, Stephanie Meyer’s novel (and the accompanying movie) Twilighttwilight: New MoonSusan BoyleSlumdog Millionaire, “MySpaceMySpacelayouts” and Michael Jackson.

The iPad was the emergent search winner in the consumer electronics category, followed by the iPhone 4,Nokia 5530HTC EVO 4G and Nokia N900.

In terms of news searches, Haiti proved the most popular, followed by Turkish sports club Besiktas, Chile, “earthquake,” Lady Gaga and the iPhone 4. The Gulf of Mexico oil spill ranked 10th.
