Yahoo! recently published their Top Ten Searches of 2010 and I thought you all needed to see them:
Top Searches on Yahoo! in 2010
1. BP oil spill
2. World Cup
3. Miley Cyrus
4. Kim Kardashian
5. Lady Gaga
7. Megan Fox
8. Justin Bieber
9. American Idol
10. Britney Spears
Seven were celebrities (or celebrity-related), one was sports-related, one was tech, and one was news. I guess I'm pleased to see that the top item was news; the BP oil spill was an incredibly important and horrible event, and it went on for so long, I'm not surprised it was the number one search this year.
Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber I get - she's fascinating and wears perfectly outlandish clothes, and he's the IT boy of the year. But I don't get the Kardashians at all.
And Megan Fox? No offense, but seriously? Britney Spears? I would have thought we were done with her.
Yahoo's list has made me feel completely out of touch.
