How to use Google to discover new products from Google

Google’s mission has always been to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful. What better way to do that than by starting within their own company!

You may be wondering how you can possibly keep up with the countless new products, enhancements and releases that Google is always working on. Google makes it real easy by simply going to their official About Google page.

From the ‘About Us’ page, users can navigate and keep up-to-date with the latest news from the Google blog directory, search for a job at Google, financial information and corporate governance among countless other topics.  Google initiatives are ever-growing and this page is most likely the best starting point to follow such initiatives as Google Ventures, Google Green among others. Google also ensures that people who are new to Google (if there are any nowadays) learn first-hand about the company, its philosophies, what they believe and what they do. Google even makes available a short history of its beginnings, and an in depth look is also freely available.

For hardcore daily Google users, the ‘About Us’ page has a lot to offer as well. The page includes links to all of Google news outlets that includes its blog directory, images, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube directories.  Opening the Facebook  Directory link for example, shows a list of all the official Google Facebook Pages that include Chrome Experiments, Google Analytics, Google Fiber, Google Maps among others. You will be amazed by how many Facebook pages Google maintains by clicking on this link alone. The same case with the Twitter, YouTube and Google+ links.

All of Google press releases have also been made available under the ‘Investor Relations‘ link. From here, you can follow financial information, events, conferences, webcasts and meeting information that date as far back as 2004.

My favorite part is of course, the ‘Doodles’ page, a museum of Google logos commemorating people, holidays and events. The page lists all the past Google doodles, by both year and country, dating as far back as 1998. I just don’t seem to get enough of these doodles.
