“Who is osama?! & why is it so good he died?” wrote one user of the social network site. Another wrote: “Who is Osama Bin Laden? Is he in a band aswell?”

Other Web users at least looked him up rather than admitting their ignorance online. Yahoo searches for “Osama bin Laden” doubled in the hours after his death was announced.
