Google has launched a new mobile-only feature that makes people more discoverable on Google Search.
People cards allow people including influencers, content creators, entrepreneurs, self-employed individuals, freelancers and everyone who wants to be discovered to create their presence on Search in the form of a card similar to a Google Search Knowledge Panel that includes all the details they want other people to have about them.

The Head of Consumer Apps, Sub Saharan Africa at Google, Olumide Balogun said that for many people, whether content creators, business professionals, or just wanting to stand out from the crowd, having an online presence is important.
According to him, anyone with a Google Account can create a People Card by simply searching for their name and tapping the ‘add me to Search’ prompt.
“We built this feature for the millions of influencers, content creators, entrepreneurs, self-employed individuals, freelancers, or anyone else out there who wants to be discovered.
“For those without a formal website, or for people who share a name with many others, this is an easy way to create or distinguish their presence on Search,” Olumide said.
