We came across some fun Google facts.  We have all heard about how much fun Google is to work for but did you know these fun Google facts? Google’s Homepage Google’s famous homepage “Doodles” (the changing Google logo graphics) are well known and enjoyed by millions around the world.  The logo also helps as a way to mark an event or anniversary. However, the very first Google Doodle was designed as an “out of office” message?goolge In 1998 Brin and Page took the weekend off to go the Burning Man festival in Nevada. The Burning Man doodle, was designed by the Google guys and added to the homepage to let their users know they were out of office and couldn’t fix technical issues like a server crash.   Google’s Firsfirsttweett Tweet Google’s first ever Twitter post was very geekly as some of the employees. The message that was sent in February 2009, read “I’m 01100110 01100101 01100101 01101100 01101001 01101110 01100111 00100000 01101100 01110101 01100011 01101011 01111001 00001010.” So, for us people not so fluent in binary, this code is a phrase from the company’s homepage. It reads: “I’m feeling lucky.”   Google’s First Snack In February, 1999, the chewy candy known as “Swedish Fish” became the first ever company snack that was ordered into the Google office.fish Google is famous in the industry for treating its employees well.  That doesn’t mean just giving them free drinks. Google employees get full-on gourmet meals, three times a day at a ton of on-site cafes and eateries.  They also have regular BBQs during the summer.    Google’s Googleplex There are many amazing things to be seen at the Google offices.  One of the most interesting is the gigantic T-Rex skeleton — nicknamed “Stan” after a “real” dino found nearby — that watches over Googlers in Mountain View. Joining Stan in the unique campus decorations is a scale replica of the SpaceShipOne, enormous Android-themed models, pink flamingos, a large LEGO man, Google-colored phone boxes and grown-up size ball pitstans. Life at the Googleplex must be far from boring.
