The first page we all go to as soon as we turn on our Laptops is Google. Google Search is the most popular Search Engine. Its simplicity and efficiency are its trademark. Other services line Gmail: Mail from Google is also a very famous email-browser. One of the many reasons is that it is easy to reach the mail by just clicking of Gmail.

The social site wins the race. Almost everybody said that they use Facebook at least once a day. People are addicted and highly mesmerized by the site. Everybody loves to see the photos, comment on them, share statuses and moreover play Facebook quizzes. And this addiction pulls us towards the site every day. The daily new additions and changes made by the Facebook developers are sometimes received by the people positively and sometimes negatively. But this prevents the site from becoming stagnant and boring.

The URL is also personalized for everyone and so is the outlook of their personal web page. So, Google is again successful in creating something which is exactly according to the needs of the people.
