'World Cup 2022' is Vietnam's most trending Google search in 2022
Google's 2022 "Year In Search" reveals that football, online learning and entertainment were the top three trending topics among Vietnamese Internet users.
"World Cup 2022" was the most trending search term. Vietnamese also looked up other sport-related topics such as "Lich Thi Dau U23 Chau A" (AFC U23 Asian Cup) and "Ngoai Hang Anh" (English Premier League).
Google said the year's list reflects a significant change in that there is no longer the dominance of keywords related to Covid unlike in the last two years.
There was a lot of interest in keywords related to online learning platforms at the beginning of the year, it said. This meant education sites and portals "Olm" and "Azota" were in second and sixth places.
But data from Google Trends also showed that the searches for "online learning" and online learning platforms showed signs of decreasing through 2022.
South Korean films "Hen Ho Chon Cong So" (Business Proposal) (3rd) and "Big Mouth" (4th) received a lot of love from Vietnamese audiences.
Snaptik, an app that allows users to download videos from social media platform TikTok without watermarks, was in fifth place.
Last year, the most searched term in Vietnam was "Lich Thi Dau Euro," or matches in the UEFA European Football Championship.
