Based on Malaysia in 2016, the Google Trend has been classified into several categories namely searches, people, news, movies, Malay drams, local celebrities, how to, what is, car models, games and mobile devices. The trend comes in a list of top 5 highest and most searches on Google, did you google them?
The top search in Google is Euro 2016, with so many football fans in our country, there’s no wonder this premier league would be the champion. The second rank is Pokemon GO, personally I thought this trend has already gone down ages ago, apparently I was wrong! People still love the game and even until today, there are still young people who wander around searching for Charizat. The third rank on the list is BR1M 2016; I mean come on, who doesn’t want free money? It’s RM450 you guys! Young people and small families have started queuing up on the Internet to either apply or update their info in the website for the free money which will be coming in February 2017.
Guess what? Malaysia is quite a fan of United States, the most searches people on Google is the current president, Donald Trump! What kind of information do you think people googled him for? Anyways, the second most searched people is our local famous Instagrammer, Atikah Suhaime, recently, her photo of her nude with her boyfriend was spread all over the Internet, because of her good looks and this scandal, people has been paying extra attention on her.
Once again, the number one search in news section is the US election, many who got disappointed with the winning of Donald Trump in this latest election and of course, for Trump’s supporters, it was a huge hit! The next in line is the Olympic Game which has just finished recently, the intense competition between our national champion, Dato’ Lee Chong Wei and his competitors were monitored every single day in most houses.
Korean has always been a trending topic for most girls, when Korea launched their first ever zombie movie in 2016, Train to Busan, the cinemas were fully packed with people everyday. This movie does not only show the horror sentiment, it includes family love as well, and that scene touched most people hearts, there were also videos of people crying after watching the movie.
