google new years resolutions

If you’re struggling to stick to your new year’s resolutions, Google can offer you some inspiration (or distraction). It’s created an interactive world map which allows you to enter your location and post your new years wishes to a dedicated page, and see what other people around the world are hoping for in 2013.

The map is already filling up with messages ranging from the predictable “I want to get in shape” to hopes about the health of family members and the peaceful resolution of wars. Web users can post their resolutions without a Google account, which will then be processed and pop up on the map in 24-48 hours. Thanks to Google Translate, revolutions in foreign languages are automatically converted when hovering over a pin, so you can see what is being said in your home language. You can also filter the resolutions by category, such as finance, education, love and family.

The resolution map is part of Google’s 2012 Zeitgeist (spirit of the times), which rounded up all of the top searches and events of the year. It is also, of course advocating a number of Android apps and Gproducts to help with your resolutions, whether they be about getting fit, travelling more, learning something new or sorting out your finances.
