Google has reveal its annual “Zeitgeist” giving us a glimpse at some of the most popular searches in Ireland, in 2010. The results show us that the Irish still have ‘the gift of the gab’ as email, video chat and social networking were the told of the chart.

A website called Chatroulette was the top search globally. This website does exactly what the title suggests, it is a chat roulette that puts you in touch with random strangers via video chat. Google say that the website is so popular due to the “thrill seeking and spontaneous nature” of the website.

Justin Bieber came up as a highly searched term along with the Eurovision. However, the Eurovision lost out to rappers Cee Lo Green and Eminem. The Galway Races and the Grand National were top of the charts when it came to sport followed by Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney.
