As we come to the end of another year, many of us will reflect back on things we’ve experienced, lessons learned, and just everything the last 12 months brought us. 2011 has been an incredible year filled with tons of important world events as well as a lot of interesting celebrity events and gossip. Sadly, but not surprisingly, “interesting” squashes “important” online, putting celebrity news and gossip far ahead of important world events when we measure our digital voice online. Frugal Dad put together the following infographic, showing what the world found compelling enough to search for, share and talk about on Google, Facebook, and Twitter.

  1. Haha, what is the world coming to when Justin Bieber and most important person are in the same mention. I’m not old-fashioned but I truly don’t understand the hype with him and astonished that people would buy his hair for 40k dollars is truly insane!

    Also, one thing that’s sad about social media that total jokes like Rebecca Black can achieve mad popularity. Even though her videos are mocked, they surely make her a pretty penny via Youtube monetization.

  2. @used tires Bieber has some talent, but he’s way over-hyped. It’s happened before and it’ll happen again. And Rebecca black is now earning far more on deals with movies, etc than with YouTube, I’m sure, but you’re right. We laughed her right into wealth and fame.

  3. @joetech True, the hype factor is what really gets to me these days. Most people just get caught up in hitching a ride on the bandwagon just because they think they will be thought of as uncool if they don’t follow the crowd. And Rebecca has movie deals signed up now? My goodness!

  4. I understand that dividend stocks are companies which pay their investors a dividend. I know nothing beyond that. Can someone explain to me what these dividends are, how they are paid out, how you find out who offers them

  5. teeth clip the SS website for disability claims says I can claim disability if the condition will keep me from performing my work for 12 months or until death. Yuck! I have a very bad broken foot that has kept me at least 1/2 way down and not able to work as I would like, since July 2011.

  8. Never heard of the whole Rebecca Black music video thing, must have been pretty bad. Loved going through all the news. Thanks so much Joe.

  9. @Seo Manipulator 40k is so ridiculous. The person buying the hair obviously wanted the fame more than the hair itself.

  10. fully agree. I’d bet comments fuel a good percentage of an author’s future post topics.<a href=”http://aibanconstruction.com”>flooring companies calgary</a>

  11. The article provides some interesting examples of the viral nature of the web and how fast information can spread – such as the example of Rebeca Black.
