Where Trivia Comes From

Trivia, the word, comes from the Latin word trivialis. The modern usage of the word is fairly recent, and is the noun form of the word trivial. Trivia, by definition, means small factors or tidbits of information that are usually useless (or trivial) in nature.

Trivia or Fact

The difference between trivia and facts is quite trivial. Generally, trivia is considered to be a type of fact. Facts are statements of truth that can regard any number of broad or specific categories. Trivia, though, is usually considered to be more useless tidbits or facts that you don't really need to know.

So wait, trivia isn't always a question? Not necessarily. Trivia questions are a form of trivia that come in the form of questions, much like a quiz. Trivia questions are much more fun than just reading factoids. It gives the reader a chance to test their knowledge of useless facts, sometimes with a range of multiple choice options.
