Yahoo Search Flooded By People Not Knowing Who Bin Laden Is

The Internet has been going crazy over the last few days with bits of information surrounding the death of Osama Bin Laden. Reports that we have submitted includes people taking advantage of the situation and adding malware to Facebook, the Twitter stats that were revealed and the fake accounts that have been popping up all over the place.

We read a report over on the dailymail.co.uk which instantly made our jaws drop, Yahoo searches were flooded with people not knowing who Osama Bin Laden is or was. The report says that the breaking news that was heard this weekend confused teenagers under the age of 17 who desperately asked the question ‘Who is Bin Laden?’

The author also pulls in a couple of tweets that said ‘Who is Bin Laden and why should I care?’ another referred to the terrorist as ‘Ben Laden’ whilst others were asking ‘Is he famous?’ There’s another article over on the Yahoo Blog that gives more stats including the top searched questions from Sunday, check them out below.

Yahoo has added a load of stats for you to browse through including some pretty interesting ones that paint today’s teens in a not so pretty light, but you have to remember we are looking at almost 10 years ago. Perhaps they should know but isn’t it down to the education system to tell them about it?

What do you think of the stats from Yahoo? Are you surprised that teens are unsure of who the mastermind behind the tragedies of 9/11 is? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
