Google+ Posts: How To Add Bold, Italics and Strikethrough

Google+ doesn’t give you a lot formatting options for posts. There are a few bare bones formatting tools available. Here’s a quick guide.

Google plus formatted text

To make text BOLD:

      • Surround the block of text you want bolded with *
        Example: *FREE BEER*   =   FREE BEER

To make text ITALIC:

      • Surround the block of text you want italicized with _
        Example: _Smooth_  Moves   =   Smooth Moves


      • Surround the block of text you want to strike through out with –
        Example:  I am -hungry- full   =   I am hungry full
