‘Bin Laden’ Google Searches Increase Over 1 Million Percent
Osama Bin Laden’s death has made him into hot Internet real estate. The search term ‘Bin Laden’ has gone up over 1 million percent, according to Google. That is a mighty impressive, albeit expected, amount of mouse clicks.
The company announced the news on its Twitter account today. The jump started occurring on Sunday night and continued on through Monday. The increase was at its highest around when the news was breaking of Bin Laden’s death.
Wanna see it in a picture? Below is a chart released by Google illustrating the phenomenon.
Don’t worry though. Google searching has already shrunk down to less serious matters, such as tattoo artist Kat Von D and the ultimate fate of the PlayStation Network. Thank goodness for that! Wouldn’t want the Internet to get all politically aware on us.
