About the People Card by Google

Noticing how difficult it was for the not-so-famous people to be found online, Google developed and released the People Card feature in August 2020. If you are new to the internet scene that is already flowing with a pool of sites and individuals, your online presence would be considerably minute. However, the advent of the people card provided a substitute for business cards. Creating a profile for yourself on the Google People Card requires you to provide your details like your name, website, and whatnot.


The people cards act as a knowledge-base for Google that stores the personal information of individuals. However, the information that is available for public viewing depends solely on the data provided by each individual. With data amassed in India, the people cards have become available not only in this Asian country but also in some African countries. The African countries with this service are Nigeria, South Africa, and Kenya. To use this service, your system language must be English or Hindi.
