Sure, you can find just about anything you want on the web using Google. But did you know that you could also use Google to learn about your fellow human beings?

Google has a feature called Google Suggest. You have probably seen it. When you are at the Google search page, and you start to type a phrase in the search box, Google will try to predict what your search will be based on what you have typed so far.
