Google has released their Year in Search 2016 via Google Trends to show us all what the world was searching, and talking, about the most (Pokémon Go) this past year. Take a look to find out what you may have missed from 2016. And while you’re there, find out what Google Trends has to offer. You can create data trend charts for any topic or combination of topics to show interest over time. For example, this chart shows interest in education technology and data analysis over the past 5 years. You’ll notice a drop every year around late December to early January – I guess everyone takes a break to enjoy some “lighter topics” during the holidays.
