Half of Gen Z prefer to search on TikTok or Instagram instead of Google

It seems as though the internet-age adage ‘Google It’ might soon change to ‘TikTok it’ as many from Gen Z prefer to use the latter app, or Instagram, to search for information. 

New data has revealed that nearly half of Gen Z mobile users turn to the social media apps instead of Google, with 40% saying they already do so.

By Gen Z we mean the generation of people born in the late 1990s and early 2000s, and it could only be wondered what the next generation, known as Generation Alpha, would be using. 

TikTok is currently the fastest growing social media platform and has massively increased its user base in the last few years. This prompted other apps to take its approach, including Instagram Reels and YouTube Shorts. 

Google senior vice president Prabhakar Raghavan told Fortune Brainstorm Tech that when Gen Z are looking for, say, a place to have lunch, they will go to TikTok or Instagram. 

Google also confirmed the statistic to Insider, saying that they face robust competition from an array of sources. The search giant is also attempting to finding new ways to bring in younger generations through innovations in camera technology.

A road in Ghajnsielem has been temporarily closed to traffic after a portion of the street collapsed, creating a large pot hole.

One driver was left slightly injured with back pain and a mild shock as they drove along the road when the incident happened. The road in question is Triq Wied Rghajjes.

Photos were uploaded by the Ghajnsielem local council to show people the hazard and thus avoid the area. The hole also reveals a stormwater culvert. 

Due to a road closure in the Qala Road junction, Triq Wied Rghajjes saw more vehicles passing through than usual. The local council gave special thanks to the Ministry for Gozo and Minister Clint Camilleri for offering immediate assistance.

The announcement of the award was done by the College President, Professor Mike Griffin – a college which is the biggest of its kind n the world. 

It was founded in 1505 by King James IV of Scotland and now brings together well over 20,000 members and fellows from all over the world.  

Speaking about the award, Dr Jo Etienne said that when the president informed him about the award, he was struck with disbelief. ‘I am very satisfied that the methodologies and strategies I introduced are being recognised globally.’ 

‘I am proud that I gave my service so that my country is mentioned in the highest circles of my profession. I am sure that this personal recognition will serve to strengthen the cooperation of the College with our country. 

‘As part of the Cabinet of our country, I am sure that this award is also recognition of our work in the medical sector. As a Gozitan, I long to see the award becoming an inspiration to Maltese and Gozitan youth.’ 

‘My message is this: nothing and no one should stop you from reaching the top of your field – you have nothing less than anyone. Do not be scared to make your dreams a reality. This award encourages me and my country to continue working with more energy in the public life.’ 

‘I am still 46 years old and I still see so many challenges to overcome. I humbly accept this award with gratitude.’
