Happy Birthday Google
Happy Birthday Google – it’s the search engine’s 16th birthday and to celebrate, it has given itself a doodle.
The animation – in which the Google logo is yet again anthropomorphized – a parental-like ‘G’ with a party hat makes pencil marks on the ‘white wall’ next to it, first measuring the height of the red ‘o’ and then that of the taller green ‘l’. The ‘o’, which at first is ecstatic at having grown so much since the last recording, appears sullen upon the realization that the ‘l’ is so much bigger.
Google was founded in 1998 by Larry Page and Sergey Brin and its official birthday has been up for debate after the search engine previous celebrated it on the 7 and 8 September, according to Google fan site Specblo.
The doodle also features a tab, which when clicked, allows the user to share the same on Google+, Facebook and Twitter.
