Facebook, IPO Among Bing’s Most-Searched Terms Of 2012

Although Mark Zuckerberg doesn’t have the tabloid-turning power of Kim Kardashian or Justin Bieber, Facebook was among Bing’s most-searched terms of the year.

The year isn’t over yet, but that didn’t stop Bing (which has been a solid partner with Facebook) from putting out its annual list.

  1. Facebook
  2. Twitter
  3. MySpace
  4. LinkedIn
  5. Tumblr
  6. Instagram
  7. Reddit
  8. StumbleUpon
  9. Digg
  10. Klout

  1. iPhone 5
  2. 2012 Elections
  3. 2012 Olympic Games
  4. Hurricane Sandy
  5. Honey Boo Boo Reality Show
