The most used things during quarantine period in the world. As covid‐19 has affected our life the most. It made all of us stay at home for more than 12 months and more. All schools, colleges, offices were closed during the quarantine which made all of us bored and frustrated. It was challenging for our parents and children. Many lost their jobs and many their lives.
Many people opted to watch videos, movies, web shows, and much more on OTT platforms like Amazon Prime, Netflix, Youtube. And many were involved on social media and apps like Tik‐Tok and Moj videos. Many enjoyed playing video games on desktop computers, mobile phones, laptops, and play stations.
Another question arises that among all which age group was involved in what kind of pieces of stuff during quarantine?
Many companies conducted a search for the end of 2020 and the beginning of 2021 to find what the younger consumers searched for on the internet conducted through Google, Yahoo !, Yandex and Youtube, including both mobile phones and desktop computers in Germany and the United Kingdom.
Statista says that In Germany things done by people at home during quarantine are Watching Tv(59%), Cooking(48%), Online video streaming(36%), Using social media(35%), Reading(41%), Video calls with friends online(23%), Playing video games(25%), Training/ education courses(8%).
If taking searches of youtube it was found that children were frequently searching for youtube channels for games, and mobile gaming live stream (35%). For example, PUBG, Freefire, Call of Duty were some most searched games around the world. At the end of the year, the second most searched topic was Tik‐Tok mashups, ” How to make Tik‐Tok videos”, and Tik‐Tok ban. In nowadays we all have easy access to technology, and parents are not aware of how their children are getting addicted to using of internet, smartphones. A study tells that only 21% of parents use parental control programs to protect their children from online browsing.
