The end of 2015 is drawing near and the past 12 months have been filled with major trends and current affairs that have been shared through social media on a global scale.

Google has released a short 2 minute ‘Year in Search 2015’ video highlighting these events ranging from the refugee crisis in Europe to the protests in Baltimore, from legalising gay marriage rights in multiple countries to the “what colour is that dress?” craze.

Check out the video below and then head over to the their website to check out some more trends that hit 2015.


And YouTube has joined in on the action too. The world’s largest video sharing site of all things pop culture continued its now annual tradition and gone all out with its own review. The 6 minute video celebrates the music, videos and people that made 2015.

It hasn’t missed any of the year’s most popular trends so make sure you check it out before the year’s over!
