MapsofWorld.com’s latest launch this week is an infographic about the overpowering influence of Google in the lives of its users. ‘Is Google Making Us Stupid?’ is a look at the search engine giant that recorded over 1.2 trillion searches in 2012. Google’s kitty of products includes a number of applications and services which have become indispensible. Google AdWords is said to have revolutionized the advertisement and marketing world while Google Maps is now the world’s favorite app. Gmail, Google Plus, YouTube, Android – the world now seems to be dominated by Google. Is all this dependence making the users stupid? The folks at MapsofWorld.com look at the stats.

Four years hence, the dependence on Google and Google products have increased multifold.

It also takes a look at the changes in research and increase in accuracy that Google has brought.
