Google: Is it making us smarter or not?
Google is one of the most popular search engines in the world. In 2013, the search engine got used over one hundred and billion times, which is significantly higher than all its competitors (Kousha et al. 124). Students, business people, and almost every person on the globe uses or has used Google as their source of information.
