Posting is straightforward in Google+ . But did you know you could format the text in your posts? Here's how.

Add a strikethrough by adding a dash (or single hyphen) before and after the text. Like -this-
Add italics by adding an underscore before and after the text. Like _this_

Here's what it looks like after I post it.
Because Google+ allows you to go back and edit your posts, knowing how to format and, especially, strikethrough text is pretty handy to know.
