Google maps New Year's resolutions around the world


Google is letting people peg their New Year's resolutions to an online map and see what promises others around the world have set out to keep in 2013.

By yesterday, a resolutions section at the California Internet giant's 2012 Zeitgeist website had logged half a million entries, more than a third of which involved desires

Vows to improve personal health were rife in the United States, while Russia was at the head of the class when it came to education-focused resolutions, according to Google.

Pledges mapped at were divided into categories that included love, health, finance, career, education and family.
