We all need to search for something online sooner rather than later. Whether it’s to learn more about a news story, discover the latest gossip on a celebrity, define a word, or find the best website for a certain task. Whatever you searched for last, we want to know all about it.
MakeUseOf Is Watching You!
OK, we’re not really watching you, but we are interested in what you get up to when you’re not reading MakeUseOf. We want to know, What Is The Last Thing You Googled?
Unlike the NSA and other governmental spy agencies around the world, we’re not going to track you across the Internet without your knowledge. That would be rude. Instead, we’re asking you outright to reveal a little about yourselves by answering the question above.
Just try to remember what you last searched for online. If you can’t remember, you can always check your History to jog your memory. Or, alternatively tell us the last thing you search for online that you can remember. It doesn’t matter whether it was a day, a week, or a month ago.
It’s entirely possible it’s been a long time since you searched for anything online. Perhaps because you have a specific set of websites you visit regularly, which between them provide all of the information you need. Or perhaps because you’re the fount of all knowledge and there is nothing you don’t know that Google could possibly tell you. Yeah, OK, we believe you.
If this is the case then we dare you to go and Google something right now. Go on, scoot off to Google and search for something. Anything. Just a person, place, object, word, or phrase you’d like to learn more about but which you have never had the time or a good enough excuse to do so. Then come back here and take part in the discussion like everyone else. You know it makes sense.
Oh, and before anyone gets smart in the comments by telling us they use Bing, Yahoo, DuckDuckGo or any of the other alternative search engines, we get it, but “Googled” makes for a much punchier headline. So there. Carry on.
We Need You!
All comments will be read and most will be replied to, before the responses are turned into a full article. Those readers providing the best comments will be thanked by name, receiving our extreme and everlasting gratitude for their efforts.
We Ask You is a column dedicated to crowdsourcing the wisdom of MakeUseOf readers. Those wise and wonderful human beings that make it possible for MakeUseOf to exist. This column is nothing without you, as MakeUseOf is nothing without you.
