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

Along with iStuff and Justin Bieber

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.
