Last year’s Google data announced that a record-breaking number of people were looking for “good” things, and this year’s statistics move in a very related positive direction.
According to the tech company’s latest internet data, there was a global rise in people searching for phrases such as “unlikely heroes”, “everyday heroes”, “sheroes”, and “unsung heroes”.
“We found heroes at the box office, where Avengers: Endgame was the top-trending movie around the world (in fact, ‘hero’ was searched three times more than ‘villain’ globally this year),” Google wrote in a statement.
“We turned to real-life heroes in times of crisis, when searches for ‘how to become a first responder’ hit an all-time high in the U.S. We cheered for them on the field, where Megan Rapinoe was one of the top-trending athletes globally. And she was joined by other leading ladies: searches for ‘sheroes’ increased by 150% and the ‘first female spacewalk’ became a breakout trend worldwide.”
