We are obviously a celebrity-obsessed nation, as evidenced by eight of the year’s top 10 searches being entertainment-related. The ninth and tenth spot are occupied by Marian Rivera and Mariel Rodriguez respectively while numbers three through seven are for Manny Pacquaio, Anne Curtis, Shaina Magdayao and John Lloyd Cruz, Kris Aquino and Willie Revillame. Being basketball fanatics, we’ve keyed in “NBA” more than any other keyword this year. The only non-entertainment topics in the top 10 are election results just below the penthouse and the nursing board exam results at number eight.
We watch entertainment/celebrities on TV, we follow their social site accounts, but they’re not enough. We even need to search about them.
God bless, PNoy!
