Americans turn to Google for just about everything. With 96% of Americans using Google to answer questions regularly, a search history can reveal someone’s deepest, darkest secrets, and the questions they don’t want to don’t want to ask anyone else.
A new nationwide survey finds that 1 in 3 Americans have asked Google an existential question about life.
- Top Googled questions in the US: why is the sky blue, what do dreams mean, what is the meaning of life
- Average number of questions people ask Google per day: 10
- 1 in 5 say they couldn’t go a day without consulting Google
Not everyone loves turning to the search engine… 1 in 10 say they do not think it is morally acceptable to ask Google for advice.
