Google introduces ‘People Cards’ which can help you to make your personal virtual visiting card
The technology giant Google has now introduced an amazing tech that lets you create your virtual visiting cards and lets people directly search you from Google search. The new service launched by the company is known as ‘People Cards‘. Google says until now if you searched for a famous person on the Google search you would get the correct result, but if you search for someone who is not famous it will be difficult to identify them.
If you’re a business professional, performer, or anyone looking to build up your own online presence, you might have a website, social profiles, and other information spread across many sites. If you’re just getting started, you may not have a website or much of an online presence at all. Today, we are solving these challenges with a new feature called people cards.
Google also said that they have a bunch of protections and controls in place to maintain the quality of information on People Cards. So as per the rules and avoid fake ids Google will allow only one People Card Google Account, and a phone number is required to authenticate the account.
Google claims that with people cards, it is aiming to provide “helpful and reliable information” to the public. Thus, it gives the option to all users to flag abuse, impersonation, or even low-quality content, if they find anything odd through people cards.
To create a People Card, sign in to your Google Account, then either search for your name or enter “Add me to Search” in Google Search and then tap the prompt that appears. You can add an image, your Google account, a description of yourself, links to websites and social profiles, and if you wish, a phone number or email address.
If you’re trying to find someone on Search, these new cards make it quick and easy to find the right person. When you search for someone’s name and there’s a card available, you’ll see a module with the name, profession, and location, which you can tap to see their card. For people who share the same name, you’ll see multiple modules, and the information can help you distinguish between the different individuals to find who you’re looking for.
