Google, one of the most powerful brands in the world, grew a lot from year to year and it became a huge success despite being unconventional.
If you are well aware of the Google search engine and Google’s services, then here you can read about some things you probably don’t know about Google.
1. The First Google Doodle
Doodle – the logo that sometimes appears on Google’s main page was created in 1998. It appeared in a weekend when founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page went to a festival in Nevada.
That Doodle, a man, was going to announce users that the technical problems will be solved in a few days.
2. The first Google Tweet
The first tweet from Google was made in 2009 and it looks like this: I’m 01100110 01100101 01100101 01101100 01101001 01101110 01100111 00100000 01101100 01110101 01100011 01101011 01111001 00001010
For those less familiar with the binary system, this message is translated: I’m feeling Lucky.
3. Google’s initial name
The initial name of Google was BackRub. The project was hosted on the Stanford University servers.
The hand of Larry Page appears in the photo, one of Google’s founders. They didn’t had much money at the time so they couldn’t afford to hire a designer.
4. The Google Logo
Google’s main page became a classic example of online design. At first, the logo was different than the one we know today.
Initially, the logo had a exclamation point at the end and it was not centered – it was centered only on march 31, 2001.
5. Google and Goats
Googleplex, Google’s HQ, is full of goats! They are used to take care of all the green things around Googleplex.
