Search Behavior Proves Humans Are Just Weird
Josh Chambers, Former Viget
This amazing post on why Google loves Denmark inspired me. What do people search for? What are we thinking? What does Google think? I started this thinking I would find some funny stuff, but I was not at all prepared for some of these results. Some of them are offensive, so be warned. Some are absolutely hilarious. All of them say something about human behavior online...
First, some general questions:
Then, I decided, what do people think about the countries within the G8? How about the continents? I moved onto "I Am," then kept going. But a lot of them were just too offensive to post. All of them have something striking and a bit surprising. I have to admit, some of them are just depressing, like, "What should I do with my life?" Sure, we all ask that question, but are we really hoping to find answers on Google?
I could say more, but enjoy peering into the dark, weird soul of humanity.
Last, I am...
