   Google was founded by Larry Page and Sergey Brin while they were Ph.D. students at Stanford University. Larry and Sergey own about 16 percent of Google's share so they incorporated Google as a private company on September 4, 1998. Later on, Google stated its mission in a gathering, saying their aim is "to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful". In 2006, Google moved to their headquarters in Mountain View, California, nicknamed the Googleplex

    Presently, Google offers online productivity tools which includes email (Gmail), an office suite (Google Docs), and social networking (Google+). Their Desktop Applications include web browser, photo editor, organizer and Instant Messaging App. Google is also leading the development of the Android mobile operating system and the browser-only Google Chrome OS for a specialized type of PC known as Chromebook. Google has moved increasingly into communications hardware: partnering with major electronics manufacturers e.g. ASUS, in production of its high-end Nexus Tablets and Smartphones.

   In total, Google has been estimated to run more than one million servers in data centers around the world and to process over one billion search requests and about twenty-four Petabytes of user-generated data each day. In December 2012, Alexa listed as the most visited website in the world. Numerous Google sites in other languages figure in the top one hundred, and several other Google-owned sites such as YouTube and Blogger
