Google has released their Year in Search 2017, and it's a fascinating snapshot of where we are as a world. Or as a country - depending on what you're looking at. We're focusing on global trends here, and want to know how much have you been paying attention? Are you into memes? Do you search for culinary inspiration? Is Rotten Tomatoes your go-to for movie reviews? Everyone shares photos and video on social media. Can you guess what was the most shared? The most searched for? Does the phrase Googled mean anything to you? Take this quiz, and let's find out!

Did you know?

Why are trends so important?

Trends are an interesting thing. Take Google trends - they're not available to the public in real-time, but they do give us a snapshot. A chance to look at a moment and remember what was going on in the world. We sometimes lose perspective when we're retweeting, or sharing moments with our friends on the Internet. It's important to be able to take a step back, to reflect, and to understand how we've grown both individually and as a society.

For instance - on December 14, 2016, University of Toronto scientists presented findings of the world's oldest water - 2 billion years old from a mine in Canada. I bet you didn't remember that happened. It did.

Here's hoping 2017 ends on a high note for you, and cheers to a happy 2018. Thanks for visiting Heywise. We really appreciate it.
