    I asked a question in/on Google

    Hello teachers,

    Here is another thread of mine about: I checked it in/on/of/from/off/ Google. Which I got the answer and members told me that it's better to use preposition (on): I checked it on Google.

    But what about this one:

    I asked a question in Google.
    I asked a question on Google.

    Would you please tell me which one fits best? Is it same us the upward thread?

    No Source / Self Made
    Many thanks in advance.

    On Google.
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....

    More naturally these days would be simply "I Googled [subject]".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Or even 'I googled [subject]'.

    The capital G is already going the way of the capital H in Hoover and I in Internet.
