It’s a sweet surprise from Google. My home page was appearing like this and when I wanted to know whose birthday ? I moused over the doodle It says “Happy Birthday Glee!” that’s really sweet!! I didn’t realize what kind of doodle it was until i clicked on it and it took me to my google+ profile.
Although it feels strange to be getting a birthday doodle from Google it is by far but more enjoyable birthday message than the automated emails/sms I get from credit/shopping cards.
It is nice to make you feel special on your birthday so that people share more information on their Google+ page. (I do use google+ a lot for my blog) All in all a great piece of marketing and a step towards a more personalized browsing experience.
Thank you Google!
