How To Format Your Google+ Posts

One thing you may notice if you use Google+ is that a lot of people will use different forms of formatting in their posts when they wish to emphasise certain things. It’s pretty simple to do, so lets take a look at a few useful ones.

How to bold words

To bold some words just add a star to the beginning and end of the word/s (no space).

*Bold these words* will give Bold these words

How to italicize words

To change your text into italics simply add an underscore to the beginning and end of the word/s.

_These words are now in italics_ will give These words are now in italics

How to strike though a word or sentence

To get this effect just add a hyphen to the beginning of the word or sentence and then to the end of it. Again there is no space.

-This is using the strike though effect- will give This is using the strike though effect

Here is a before and after:

This is what it looks like before posting

This is what it looks like once the formatting has taken effect

Hope that helped.
