Google turkey
The latest Google Doodles gives a modern upgrade to hand turkeys—and a boost to the search engine's social network.

Google has made it easy to get into the Thanksgiving spirit. But there's a reason the search engine is so giving.

The search engine’s latest interactive Doodles allows users to customize their own turkey from the company’s main page. It’s the digital equivalent of those hand turkeys you probably made back in elementary school.

Users are encouraged to share the images by uploading them to their profile on Google+, the search company’s new social network, which has been breaking all sorts of new ground lately.
