I came across the top 100 searches by kids in America and its pretty sad. In my day kids were much better at computers than adults, but I think times have changed. Search term number 6 was YouTube.com, also searched for was www.yahoo.com and google.com. It seems kids don't they know the difference between an internet search bar and an address bar. Its also ridiculous that they searched for google.com. What do they plan to do after searching for google.com? Do they even know what a search engine is? They should probably watch this video to learn the basics.
Another interesting thing was the difference between boys and girls. I'm not going to try and read anything imaginary out of these data, but I will state some facts. Wikipedia is number 9 most searched for boys and number 20 for girls. 7/10 of the 11 terms the difference were pop culture things like celebrities. Boys on the other hand had only 2 names in the whole top 25. Of course though it may be that girls were intelligent enough to type "en.wikipedia.org" rather than search for it. I doubt it though because number six on the girls list was youtube.com. For the record, youtube.com was # 8 for boys.
Why are kids so dumb nowadays?
