“Anything you need, you can find in the Internet” I’ve heard been said over and over again by several people. I happen to agree. The funny part is though, that phrase has evolved more and more to “Ask Google”. It’s not just a phrase anymore, it’s advice. It has taken another context nowadays.
“Where can I find specialty food in X place?”, “How to relief flu symptoms?”, “How to lose 10 lbs in 10 days”, “What to cook fast and easily for the Holidays?”, “Where to buy the cheapest?”. These questions go on and on. And although there are special sections to pose your questions such as “Yahoo Answers”, people just type in Google’s address on the site line and ask the search engine.
At this moment, on my night stand lays “What Would Google Do?” a book by Jeff Jarvis. He too mentions the need to ask Google. Not in the same phrase per se, but indeed in how people credit Google to have the greatest knowledge on Earth. The key difference one must always keep in mind is the fact that Google is the ACCESS to knowledge given and posted by millions and billions of people around the planet.
But indeed, after a direction pointer, do ask Google for your inquiries 🙂
