With the introduction of governmental enforced lockdowns and the ensuing restrictions all over the world, people and businesses have adopted various communications tools for adapting to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Teleconferencing tools have played a major part in enabling the continuity of business meetings as well as private social gathering among friends. 

Zoom Video Communications became especially popular for communicating and holding online meetings. This trend can be seen in the number of domains that are associated with Zoom. The data in our structured search engine shows a continuing growth in the domains associated with Zoom since the pandemic hit. 

The popularity of Zoom however differed between North America and Europe: the number of domains associated with Zoom increased as a result of the pandemic, both in Europe and North America. The latter, however, shows a steeper increase and is still leading ahead.
