Interesting Google Trends #1

Can I be frank with you?

I like lots of stats. Not just sports ones. So, when I (re)discovered Google Trends, and found out that I was able to do a bunch of interesting searches, I decided that some of these were too good not to share.

So, here’s a new thing: three interesting Google Trends that I found.

(Note: Blue named first, then red, then yellow, then green.)

Come on, is Facebook really that much better than my preferred social network? Facebook is on the decline, but so is Twitter, unfortunately.

Maybe Twitter will fare better against other social networks?

Sometime in 2015, Instagram overtook Twitter when it came to Internet search, and is currently continuing the upward trend. Fortunately, it’s still a fair bit better than Snapchat.

Athens v Beijing v London v Rio
