If you google frequently, you would have realised the normal google logo has been replaced with a birthday cake today. Today marks Google’s 12th birthday since it was founded. The confusion lies in the fact that if Google was incorporated on September 4th, 1998, how come it is celebrating its birthday today on the 27th of September.
I myself am not sure why but I felt Google knows best so I relied on google to give me the answer. However there’s not much reliable information that I managed to google up. There are loads of different dates relating to google:
- January 1996 – google started as a research project
- September 15, 1997 – the domain google.com was registered
- September 21, 1998- first employee hired
but none coincide with 27th September.
Best guess is that Google can celebrate its birthday whenever it wants to. Perhaps only Google can help us solve this mystery.
Anyway, happy birthday once more, Google! Thanks for all the information you load us with anytime, any day.
