fter Saturday, May 21st, or what the Christian Radio Broadcaster Harold Camping calls 'End Of The World May 21st,' Camping should consider a job in Internet Marketing. As of this writing, Mr. Camping's wild, prediction, driven by his own homespun math and logic, only loosely based on The Bible, have come to dominate search.
Now, not less than five search terms related to Mr. Camping's work are among the Google Trends: "End Of The World May 21st," "may 21 doomsday," "may 21 rapture," "judgement day," amd "judgement day 2011."
On top of that, "Harold Camping" has been a Twitter top trend.
And all of that for something that will turn out to be just another day, as I predict:
But it's wild that, of all people, Harold Camping would earn this much attention. But, basically because he's the only person saying it, and because digital media has amplified his voice, it's hard to turn anywhere without hearing about "End Of The World May 21st," or anything else.
And if you think it's bad now, wait until Friday progresses.
