Google Adds Sharing Link to Local Knowledge Panel

I have not seen this before. Not sure if a test or a release. Google is getting downright social in their old age.

And in typical Googly fashion THEY decide which sharing I should be able to use rather than relying on the iPhone OS level options. Oops just seemed to have forgotten SMS/iMessage. Big surprise there.

It seems that Google just can’t resist falling into this sort of passive aggressive monopolist mode. It must be what is best for the user.

  1. That is a surprise for us local marketers. By the way Mike, contact me please on Google plus when you get the chance. I have a pressing issue to get resolved regarding the suspension of my business listing page. Thank you!

  2. Great find! I checked a few local listings and the share action is present. Also, on Android tapping the share button brings up the OS level sharing options…if that means anything to you 🙂

  3. Hi Mike,
    Could you explain to me what is the new thing here? The sharing feature was already there for a long time. Is it just the sites where you can share your business card / knowledge panel to?


  4. I’m seeing it in Edmonton, Canada. However, I must be more old-school than Google – I have no idea why I’d ever share the info. But, that could be my anti-social media stance (for personal use at least – we all know we need it for business!)

  5. I did not even notice that. A friend of mine told me that you want to do Google everything. That Google+ is more important than every other social media. But if you take notice if Google is taking time and sharing on other social medias, you should too.
