Google, Facebook join Pakistanis in celebrating Independence Day

Google puts up a doodle while Facebook allows you to set your mood to 'celebrating Independence Day'

Web Desk August 13, 2015

As Pakistan geared up to celebrate its 69th Independence Day, flags adorning every balcony and window, lights decorating buildings and hues of green flooding the streets, Google and Facebook joined in on the celebrations introducing their own ways to mark the day.

As the clock struck twelve on Friday, Google changed its Doodle to tall lettering with the second 'O' replaced by an archway view of the Lahore fort with the Pakistan flag flying high.

On the other hand, Facebook presented an innovative way for users mark independence, allowing them to update their status with a mood setting of “celebrating Independence Day” and sharing it with their friends and family on the social network.


Ali | 7 years ago | Reply This shows the power of Pakistan...the global companies have started taking note of Pakistan, soon every country on this earth will follow - since many brainy workforce of major IT companies are from Pakistan these companies are forced to do such things, what Pakistan has to do is we need to create and environment to attract the Pakistan origin tech workforce back and then soon we will have our own facebook and google, also we can destroy the Indian IT industry with our own world class IT products...
