We all know Google as a search engine giant. You can find anything you need by typing in the right search phrase. But the monolithic "type-and-you'll-find-it" company has also been hiding features in the form of Easter eggs inside its pages for some time: commands that turn your browser upside down, fun pop culture references and even nods to popular science fiction stories.
But what do the pastel-colored eggs the Easter bunny hides every spring have to do with a search engine, or digital media as a whole? Easter eggs are fun, hidden references for users to uncover. They can range from phrases to images and everything in between. Think of them as rewards from creators for anyone who takes the time to dig into a product long enough to see what's there. They're gratifying to seek out because, typically, no one knows they're going to pop up.
