What would you do if you wanted to know about something? You would “google” it right? Google certainly has played a very big role in our life.
Google is a web search engine that was founded in 1998. It specializes in Internet-related services and products. Almost 6.9 billion searches on Google every day with over 1 billion active users monthly.
Google recently celebrated its 22nd birthday last Sunday on 27 September. The company celebrated the birthday using its signature Google Doodle.
This birthday doodle showed Google was celebrating with other “oogle” using the online platform. It is a reminder for all users to maintain social distancing even in celebrating special occasions.
The company was founded 22 years ago by Sergey Brin and Larry Page who were Stanford Ph.D. students. Later, they published a paper and a prototype that can keep a database of at least 24 million pages. Without in their imagination, Google gets very high attention globally until the word “Google” is sometimes considered to be a noun among the users.
In 22 years, the company had a dramatic growth. It has become the most popular search engine around the world and the most dominant force in advertising. It also gives a big impact on the development of the internet world.
