Two years ago today, Google, after many failed attempts at a social network, opened Google+. Today, the social network has grown to a huge community and is now celebrating its second birthday. For the occasion, Google has temporarily changed the logo for the social network to “Google+2,” which is obviously a play on the +1 feature.
Google executive Vic Gundotra had the following to say regarding Google+:
Two years ago we started the Google+ project. We’re still young, with lots of growing left to do, but today we wanted to stop (for just a second) and say thanks. It’s your support, your feedback, and your enthusiasm that make Google+ so awesome. So let’s keep building something to love. Together.
So, why don’t you join us all in wishing Google+ a happy second birthday. Here’s to more stupid, yet entertaining, animated GIFs!
