Hours after UK votes to leave, Google searchers ask: 'What is the EU?'


Hours after the UK voted to leave the European Union, "What is the EU?" became the second top UK Google search on the issue.

Google Trends showed the top query directed to the search engine was "What does it mean to leave the EU?".

The third most searched question on the EU was "Which countries are in the EU?", followed by "What will happen now we've left the EU?".

Completing the top five was the search "How many countries are in the EU?".

The questions formed the top Google searches conducted on the EU since the official Brexit result was announced.
