Before starting with the post, I have a few things to say. The title, looks pretty old. A simple search for the above topic in Google will give you a lot of results but this post is worth sharing even now. That’s the reason I posted this post here. Well, now let’s head to the post.


Do you guys remember the days when Google was first launched by Larry Page and Sergey Brin on January 1996? Google seems to have traveled a long way since it’s emergence in 1996. Now, you can see the word “Google” even in dictionaries as a verb. And now, what about Facebook? Facebook, with alexa ranking 2, is the world’s top most used social networking site. So have you ever thought have these two sites would have looked at first when they were launched? Head down.
