SAN FRANCISCO: Google is letting people peg their New Year’s resolutions to an online map and see what promises others around the world have set out to keep in 2013. By Friday, a resolutions section at the California Internet giant’s 2012 Zeitgeist website had logged half a million entries, more than a third of which involved desires to love or be loved.
Vows to improve personal health were rife in the United States, while Russia was at the head of the class when it came to education-focused resolutions, according to Google. Pledges mapped at google.com/zeitgeist/2012/resolutions were divided into categories that included love, health, finance, career, education and family.
