New Delhi : Google has launched public search profile cards for individuals in India, the company announced Tuesday. Known as “people cards,” the new feature has already begun rolling out in English for mobile users in India.
Increase visibility for personal brands
People cards may increase visibility for personal brands by making a knowledge panel-like list of links and information about an individual available to potential customers, clients and/or employers right from the search results.
Individuals that have claimed their people card can add details such as a personal description, their occupation, employer, location, profile avatar, phone number, website and social media accounts. This curated information may help people card owners influence their customer journey.
At the time of publishing, Google has yet to respond to our questions regarding whether this feature will receive a wider rollout.
