I’m proud to announce the launch of our Funny Fridays feature post. As the title implies I will be posting something funny and lighthearted every Friday. It’s the end of a long grueling week and sometimes you just want to laugh and feel good. I hope that these posts do exactly that.
Our first entry into the mix is the 2011 Google April Fools prank. This year Google announced that they would be hiring Autocompleters. Auto who? Yes autocompleters. They setup a very professional and legit looking job posting in their Jobs section (excerpt included below) and included the following video to boot.
We’re hiring autocompleters for Google Search! Are you passionate about helping people? Are you intuitive? Do you often feel like you know what your friends and family are thinking and can finish their thoughts before they can? Are you an incredibly fast Google searcher? Like, so fast that you can do 20 searches before your mom does 1?
Very funny to say the least.
