What The Unclean Masses Are Thinking: Yahoo's Buzz Index

Today I noticed Yahoo's Buzz Index feature that purportedly provides insight into mass culture by uncovering nodal points for all to see. Cool, but few surprises overall.

However, from looking at the leader board, it's obvious that a significant fraction of Yahoo's users are likely to be video-game playing, urban-music-listening, Oprah-watching (?), teenaged boys. Although Yahoo screens out all adult-themed searches, I have a feeling that the leader board would remain eerily the same even if they were included.

Comments:

Do teenaged boys really watch Oprah?
