Google Introduces People Cards (Add me to Search )

Hello Guys,

We are here with another latest news from tech Giant Google. for people who want to be found online more easily, on Google Search at least, you don’t really need to be a celebrity. Google has launched "People Cards", which are virtual visiting cards, that will help users pop up faster on searches.

In this Update, users can create a virtual visiting card on Search and highlight information like their Job Profile, existing website, social profiles, location, etc, and even a phone number and email address if they want - basically, anything you want others to know about you, publicly, goes on the card.



What are People Cards?

People cards are a new update launched by google in which a user can create a virtual visiting card

People Cards are meant to help people like influencers, entrepreneurs, freelancers, self-employed people, people looking for jobs, etc, all those who want and need to be more ‘easily discovered’. Starting today itself, users in India can create their own People Cards and can also see other people’s cards on their smartphones.

This feature is only available on Google Search on your smartphones for now and its is not available on the web. Cards are also only available in English for now, more language support will be rolled out over time.

How to create People Cards?

1. Creating a People Card is very simple. You need to be signed in to your Google account before you begin.

2. You can then search for your name on Google Search or type in - “Add me to Search”. or click on the link - Add Me to Search  Or People Cards 

3. The very first prompt you will get is to add yourself to Google Search and you can go ahead from there to creating your card. (like below)

4. Choose an image (if you want), add a description, add links to your websites and social profiles, and also a phone number and email ID (again, if you want). And that’s it. You are good to go.

Note -  Each user is allowed only one People Card and this card must be authenticated with the user’s Google account and a unique phone number. (Google )

How are these People Cards protected?

Google has put in a bunch of controls and protections in place to ensure correct and reliable information is on the cards and also to protect users from abusive and offensive content.

Each user is allowed only one People Card and this card must be authenticated with the user’s Google account and a unique phone number. Users will also have complete control of the information on their cards and can remove/delete anything at any time. You can also opt-out of the experience entirely - this will stop your card from showing up in search.

There is also a feedback button available on cards that can be used to report low-quality information or a card that might have been created by an impersonator.
