Johan Gunnarsson, a computer science student in Lund, Sweden, has assembled a list of the most viewed Wikipedia pages of 2012.
The Daily Dot speculates, probably correctly, that the top two answers, "Facebook" and "Wiki" owe their popularity more to clumsy computer users than genuine curiosity. The rest of the list, though, can be read as a guide to the things people want to know about that they don't want others to know they want to know about. Except maybe Google.
3) Deaths in 2012
4) "One Direction"
5) "The Avengers" (2012)
6) "Fifty Shades of Grey"
7) 2012 phenomenon
8) "The Dark Knight Rises"
10) "The Hunger Games"
