Gokul Rajaram: Great Indian behind Google and Facebook

We know that Facebook was developed by Mark Zuckerberg but we don’t know that it was made successful by Gokul Raja Ram. He was alone responsible for generating half of the total revenue of Facebook.

Before Facebook, he was at Google. Google was developed by Larry but was made successful by Gokul Raja Ram. While working at Google, he was responsible for generating one-third of the total revenue.

Now he has left both Google and Facebook and is now working for company Square.


He has completed his B.Tech from IIT Kanpur (2nd rank) and did his master’s from Austin, Texas and later completed his MBA from MIT Sloan.

He is also known as “Godfather of Adsense“. He worked as an Architect for ads.

He is considered to be the most down to earth person by his colleagues. He donates the huge bulk of money every year to startup companies as charity.

He is still not as popular as others in our country, because the only reason I think is, he never had any desire to be the CEO of any company, for example, legends like Sundar Pichai and Satya Nadella.
