“In 2015 the questions we asked, revealed who we are.” 

The largest search engine in the world, Google, is a pretty accurate gauge of what people are interested in/confused about/irate over.

The results are in and it looks like this year it was all about Lamar Odom, Same sex marriage, the Paris attacks and Adele.

According to TechCrunch: “In 2015, Google counted more than 897 million searches about Paris, which suffered two major terrorist attacks: the massacre at the offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in January and the November 13 shootings at several locations, including the Bataclan concert hall.”

The top questions from people within France were:

“What happened in Paris?”, “Who were the terrorists?” and “Pray for Paris”.

Whereas globally, people asked why ISIS targeted Paris, whether it was safe to travel to the city, and how many people died.

When it comes to popular culture, the site reports that Star Wars saw a big spike ahead of the premiere of the latest instalment, The Force Awakens.

However, it was beaten out by Jurassic World which was the most searched film title of the year.

When it comes to public figures, people were most interested in the Kardashians, however, it wasn’t Kim who came out on top.

Khloe Kardashian’s estranged husband Lamar Odom was a top search following his collapse and Caitlyn Jenner was also high on the list following her gender transition.

Other top searches include Adele, Cecil the Lion, Princess Charlotte, Same-sex marriage, and The Dress.
