So You Think You Know People?

What would you expect to be the most searched words on Google? Yes you probably guessed right “sex” which in many countries is number one. However Google China report a slightly different emphasis and the names of three banks; China Merchants Bank, Industrial, Commercial Bank of China and China Construction Bank and the word "stocks" have become the most Googled words in China in the last year.

The most searched questions on the global list were "what is love" and "how to kiss" , but in China they were more interested in "what is a blue chip" and "how to invest in the stock market".

The results show that its not always as easy to predict people in a global world and local culture still prevails or its simply that the Chinese have a fixation on making money!
