Tip 16/50: Explore Formatting For Beautiful, Engaging Posts
Google+ posts don't have to be plain text. Add formatting including bold, italics, strike-through and bullet points to make them instantly more interesting.

OK, so for many of you this tip won't be a revelation but I still see many people neglecting to use formatting so I think it serves a good reminder.

Bold = Asterisk's (*) immediately either side of the text you want to embolden
Italic = Underscores (_) immediately either side of the text you want to slant
Strike-through = Hyphens (-) immediately either side of the text you want to cross out

I also use Ascii symbols as styled bullet points within my posts. To use these I simply copy and paste them into where I want them - you may want to bookmark this post so you have them for future reference :)

Some of my favourites include:
