Only my mom searches on Google

Online Addict

Notice there’s not browser tab with Google or Bing open?

Searching on Google isn’t #1; people search on Facebook more.

More so, they don’t search at all; they ask.


Mom is old school. She only recently learned to use Google. She starts every online session with the well known search box. Even for getting to Facebook.

She’s always been about connecting with people over trusting the Internet. People over tech.

Yet, with Twitter, Facebook and other online communities, many of us turn to those communities for answers.


Want to know the best bbq in St. Louis? Ask.

Want to find a great hair stylist? Ask.

The more complex the question the easier it’s become to ask instead of search.


Is search dead? No; we’ve just rediscovered neighbors.
