It is very easy to create Memes with Google Plus. Google just rolled out this update, and it is already available for many people. You may not notice the new Photo Text tool until you upload a picture.
Two Ways to Create Memes with Google+
There are two ways to create Memes on Google +. You can either drag and drop your picture on the share box, or add the picture from your computer. You will notice a new button – Add Text –below the picture. Select this button and add your text.
The result you get is the image you uploaded plus a white-colored text overlay; the created meme is just like the usual ones having big white text with black borders.
If you haven’t added your first text to a picture to create a meme, you may not understand how interesting this could be. Obviously, including the right text on some photos can draw a lot more attention and turn a boring picture to an information piece. This feature is new, but it can truly enhance engagement on Google Plus.
New Features on Google Plus
With this new feature, it is becoming more glaring that Google is determined to turn Google+ to a fully engaging social network. Criticisms have not deterred them in anyway; and truly, their geniuses are doing a great job.
Now, we have the drag-and-drop and the meme creation features. Another new feature is the hashtag auto-complete feature, that provides recommendations (as seen in Google search) when you begin a word with #. Google’s Chris Messina announced this second feature in a separate update.
Certainly, it won’t take long before Google will introduce another impressive feature. However, one thing boggles the mind. Can an average social network user dump the carefully selected friends on Facebook and begin to spend more time on Google Plus? If you ask Eric Schmidt, he will tell you “it’s just a matter of time”.
