The Super Bowl is this Sunday, February 7, in Tampa, Florida at the Raymond James Stadium. Google Trends already reports some really interesting trends in search behavior related to the Super Bowl.
I am not a fan of the Super Bowl but I am interested in how big event affect what we search for in Google.
There are big increases in search interest for Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Since The Weekend is performing at the Super Bowl there is an increased interest in lyrics for some of his song. There is also an interesting pattern for how we search for Super Bowl foods.
I practices using Flourish and created an animated line chart for the past 30 days search patterns for some Super Bowl players.
Flourish Animated Line Chart
Building an animated line chart in Flourish is really easy. I built several line chart visualization where with each new one I am adding the next line and changing the color to the previous lines to grey. Then combined all these visualizations into a story.
