Format The Text In Google+ Posts

Here's how to easily bold, italicize or strike through the text of your Google+ posts.

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.
