Twerking. Snapping. Selfies: Yahoo’s 2013 Year In Review

Is it just us, or did 2013 come and go as quickly as this ridiculously photogenic guy did last year?

Today Yahoo released its 2013 Year In Review, a look back at daily search habits from the year. Your top searches included high-profile trials, Obamacare, and the twerk seen round the world. You and millions of others searched the most for none other than Miley Cyrus, who came into our lives like a wrecking ball, dethroning Kim Kardashian, who was at the top of list in 2012.

Here’s a look at the top searches of the year on Yahoo in 2013:

  1. miley cyrus
  2. kim kardashian
  3. kate upton
  4. minecraft
  5. selena gomez
  6. obamacare (affordable care act)
  7. amanda bynes
  8. jodi arias
  9. iphone 5
  10. justin bieber

What else had you searching this year? Your top obsession is America’s favorite bearded duck-calling family show, “Duck Dynasty.” “Breaking Bad” found the recipe to get to the top and came in as the number two obsession. But let’s not forget about our strategically angled, filtered self portraits! The selfie came in at number nine on our list (just admit it — you love taking selfies!).

One thing is sure to trend for the rest of the year… Anchorman 2. And speaking of Ron Burgundy, the man himself has a special report for you on this year’s top Yahoo searches. Over to you, Mr. Burgundy.

The top searched news stories on Yahoo reveal a wide breadth of domestic and international affairs. At the top of the list was the Jodi Arias trial followed by Obamacare. The birth of the royal baby took the number four spot and Paula Deen’s lawsuit came in at number nine.

For the first time Yahoo’s Year In Review features some of the coolest, funniest, most creative new blogs on Tumblr from 2013.

But what about the comeback kids? Fads of the past came roaring back throughout the year. You searched for everything from combat boots and jelly sandals to boy bands and high-waisted jeans.

So go on, eat that last Cronut (one of the top searched food crazes this year!) and give it one last twerk before we bid adieu to our internet obsessions of 2013.
