Gen Z is using TikTok and Instagram instead of Google

news: At Fortune’s Brainstorm Tech conference, Google Senior Vice President Prabhakar Raghavan highlighted the change in Internet usage across generations.

  • “In our study, like about 40% of young people, when they are looking for a place to have lunch, they don’t turn to Google Maps or Search,” Raghavan told World Nation News. “They go to TikTok or Instagram.”
  • This data was accumulated through Google’s internal research, which also included a survey of US Internet users aged 18-24.

Why? According to World Nation News, the survey found that young people prefer “visually rich” forms of search.

When you use multisearch to find it near you When you do, Google scans millions of images and reviews posted on web pages, and our community of map contributors, to find results about nearby places that Dish has to offer so you can enjoy it yourself. can take,” Google explained of its new plan.
