Louisiana’s Top Google Search is Painful Reminder of Who We Lost in 2017
We lost quite a few legends last year, but one name stands out among the rest.
What did we do before Google? Seriously. Can you imagine someone running to grab their Encyclopedia to answer questions like "Which movie is the top at the box office this weekend?" or "Which Kardashian is pregnant?" Life moves way too fast for that and the latest set of leather-bound books just can't keep up.
Aside from this instant wealth of knowledge, we can also collect data from those searches.
At the end of the year, Google released a list of which topics were typed into their search engine the most in each state. The results were published by the Daily Dot. Americans Googled everything from new phones and popular movies to man buns and giant penguins. In Louisiana, we searched for one of the legends we lost in 2017.
A legend in the music industry, Fats Domino was born in New Orleans. He is credited with being one of the pioneers of rock and roll music. He passed away in Harvey, Louisiana last year.
