Google Search history provides a snapshot of the present

This infographic by Google showcases the real-time changes in what people were searching for on Google during this year’s Super Bowl. This offers an interesting snapshot into the how people researched the teams prior to the event and changed their searches according to the on field action during the event. Most interestingly, there was a huge movement towards mobile search during the event.

This makes one wonder, if scientists of the future will one day be able to piece together our present by scanning our collective Google search history.
