Today is the 12th birthday of search engine giant Google, so you may have noticed their special doodle on the homepage. The company started back in 1998 and in those 12 years, has gone on to beat the competition out of the water.
Google does not only creates Doodles for themselves; there has been a number of other designs over the years. Here is a history of how it all started.
The two founders of Google done something that not many people could do, they had a dream and brought it to fruition with a lot of hard work. Most of us can remember where we were 12 years ago; can you tell us where you will be in the next twelve? That is certainly an interesting question, one that Garett Rogers from ZDnet came up with.
Google has gone on to do much more than just being a search engine, they have tried some things and they have not worked out that well, but Android OS is a complete success. They have tried their hand at social media services, but most of what they do has not taken off.
Social networking is a huge deal and is something that Google needs to get in on; you only have to look at the success of Facebook to understand what I am going on about.
Where will you be in 12 years?
