Original blog: Top 10 search suggestions for ‘What is’, 2 April 2013 (Liz)

It’s 5.31am. I woke up hours ago for no reason at all and cannot convince my mind to relinquish wakefulness. Here’s what I learned about the Internet-searching mass of humanity that we’re a part of while the sky turned to gunmetal grey and the birds tentatively heralded the morning.

While googling something (I’ll never admit exactly what), I used the phrase “what is”. Here are the top 10 suggestions it offered me to complete my question:

1. What is love?
2. What is illuminati?
3. What is my IP?
4. What is global warming?
5. What is instagram?
6. What is the Harlem Shake?
7. What is Social Media?
8. What is marketing?
9. What is stress?
10. What is my IP address?

It seems we’re all a little lost at every level of being human, from the biggest questions about why and how we live to Instagram and the Harlem Shake.
