Google is my choice for the brand with the alphabet G for today’s #AtoZChallenge, for the theme ‘Brands that people identify with’. Easy to guess, again. Founded in 1998, by Larry Page and Sergey Bin, Google is one of the most innovative companies in the world.
Facebook is my choice for F, for today’s #AtoZChallenge, for the theme ‘Brands that people identify with’. Obvious, isn’t it? Launched in 2004, by Mark Zuckerberg with his college fellows, the website, initially meant for use by Harvard students, was later expanded to students at other universities and high schools, and then to the employees of companies, including Apple Inc. and Microsoft. Starting from September, 2006, Facebook was opened to everyone at least 13 years old with a valid email address.
eBay is the brand for today’s #AtoZChallenge, for the theme ‘Brands that people identify with’. The world’s largest online marketplace, where people sell and buy just about anything from sandwiches, to Chihuahua pets, to Lamborghini, to airplanes and jets, is an amazingly popular and successful website. Originally called AuctionWeb, eBay was founded in SanJose, California in 1995 by Iranian American computer programmer Pierre Omidya at the age of 28.
While Disney is the perhaps the best known brand, starting with D, but my pick for today’s #AtoZChallenge for the theme ‘Brands that people identify with’, is Danone, as its healthy food products find their way into our homes. In 1919, Isaac Carasso, started a small yogurt business in Barcelona, Spain and named it “Danone,” meaning “Little Daniel” after his son. Carasso came from the Balkans, where yogurt was a dietary staple; and so he decided to introduce this healthy product in Barcelona.
Keeping in line with my theme ‘Brands that people identify with’, for #AtoZChallenge, the brand that I’ll write about today, is Coca Cola – the fizzy drink that is recognized by young and old alike all over the world. This iconic brand, which is sold in over 200 different countries, was launched way back in 1886 in Atlanta, Georgia!
Apple turned a year short of 40 today. Born in a garage in the US, on 1st April, 1976, Apple grew up to become one of the world best brands under the care of its founders Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne. My theme for the challenge being ‘Brands that people identify with’, what could be a more apt name than Apple to begin my #AtoZ Challenge with?
