    Last month, thought it would be fun to create a world map showcasing the most googled product costs for every country. The infographic is based on Google’s autocomplete function, which provides users with suggestions based on common searches by other users. Though not scientifically accurate, it yields some pretty funny, and some very questionable, results.

    Using the formula “how much does a * cost in (x country)” in their Google search bar, they found that Google users want to know:

    • How much a kidney costs in Iran
    • How much a prostitute costs in Brazil
    • How much watermelons cost in Japan
    • How much rhinoplasty costs in Korea
    • How much a tummy tuck costs in Mexico

    Check out all the surprising findings in the maps below:

    Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.

    Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.

    However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.

    We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community. Even a $1 contribution goes a long way.  Thank you for everyone's support. We love you all and can't appreciate you guys enough.
