Pokemon Go, porn and South Africa’s massive unemployment problem

A fun exploration of Pokemon Go via Google Trends quickly took a turn for the depressing the other day (I originally posted this on th 18th July 2016).

Initially, we struggled to find a term more popular than “Pokemon Go” initially until we struck upon “jobs”:

However, even jobs couldn’t hold a flame to the web’s favourite topic, “porn”. At least some things are constant in this life 😛

Things took a turn for the depressing though when I started looking by location. South Africa is tops globally for searches containing “jobs”:

What does all of this say about national psyche?
