Social Networks You Never Heard Of Top Google's 2010 List
 
 

It's the end of the year, and you know what that means - it's time for Google's list of the top annual search terms. What was at the top this year?

Some of them might surprise you. Some of them you have probably never even heard of before.

Unlike in previous years, the list was dominated by mobile and social networking topics. In the past, it was usually heavily packed with celebrity names and current event items. This year, it was as follows:

1. iPad
2. Chatroulette
3. iPhone 4
4. World Cup
5. Justin Bieber
6. Myxer
7. Facebook
8. Grooveshark
9. Glee
10. Mocospace

The World Cup, Justin Bieber, Facebook, iPad/iPhone...those all go without saying. But what are those other searches? Well, Chatroulette is a website that lets webcam-connected users randomly meet other users via video chat. Myxer is a site that offers free MP3s and desktop wallpapers, and Grooveshark is an Internet radio site. Mocospace, meanwhile, is a social networking service for mobile users.

This year was the year of Android when it comes to mobile news, and it would be interesting to see how much of Google's overall traffic for the year came from Android phones.

Nevertheless, either the general public is getting more in tune with technology, or the non-tech-heads aren't using Google anymore. I'd say it's the former.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
