Google’s Turns 18 Years Younger




On Tuesday Google stepped into adulthood with a celebrating and funny Doodle. Commemorating its 18th birthday, with an amusing doodle where the G of Google blows a balloon to highlight the remaining letters but ultimately ends up inflating it too much and flies off into the air.

However, there seems to be a confusion regarding the original birth date of the company. A company that was founded by Larry Page and Sergey Brin in 1998, Google from the year 2006 has celebrated its birthday on its homepage on the great date September 27. On the other hand, the weird thing is that the company has celebrated its birthday on six different dates in the past.

The fact is that Google celebrated its birthday on September 26 in the year 2006 but before that year that is in 2004 it celebrated its birthday on 7th of September and one year before that, it was celebrated on 8th September.

Although none of the dates are implied as significant but the date of incorporation of Google is recorded at 4th September 1998. Here, the fact is that no one knows when the company was really established in reality. After many years, Google itself admitted in the year 2013 that they themselves do not have any idea when the company was originally established but they chose September 27 to celebrate their birthday. Also, after its fourth birthday which was in the year 2002, Google started celebrating its birthday with a doodle.

With a market capitalization of US $541, is amongst one of the most powerful companies in the world. The founders who are Larry page and Sergey Brin ranks 12th and 13th respectively in the Forbes list of the richest people on earth.
