Google Zeitgeist 2011: Year in Review

It's that time of year again. As in past years, Google has released a video recapping the top stories (searches?) of the year. From Google:
"Zeitgeist 2011: Year In Review"

As in past years, Google showed off a number of its products in the video. The main thing to point out this year, and the main focus of the video, was Google+, and Google Hangouts in particular.

I have to confess, I didn't know who Ryan Dunn was. No offense, but I think that's a good thing.

The Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers are only shown once (Greg Jennings catching a pass), at 5:42. :(


And just like last year, Google has a site where you can see the most popular searches from 2011:

You can see which searches were most popular in which part of the world, and at what time. Play with this site a little, it's a lot of fun. Click around, it's a very good site.

Search on.
