G+ moves into meme-generating territory with new text on images feature

G+ is like the huge, rich, unpopular kid on the schoolyard, trying every trick in the book at every recess to gain popular status. This includes doing what everyone else is doing, and nicking other peoples lunch boxes. Now G+ announces a new feature 'adding funny text to photos', and we can generate meme-images without having to go to the likes of meme generator. I'm sure it'll be popular, but I'm probably not the only one who cringes every time I see Google steamroll over the smaller guys. Like when they poached customers from Mocality in Kenya, and from a more personal p.o.v. when they keep shutting adland's adsense off because they think lingerie is pornography so perfectly timed right before the super bowl as well. Do no evil, just act like that huge rich, unpopular kid in the schoolyard that everyone hates. Once school is over, you're a social pariah, enjoy.

Adding a few words can turn a silly photo into a ROFL, or draw attention to what you find most interesting. Today we're rolling out a feature that makes it easier to add big, bold text on top of your photos.
To try it out, drop a photo into the sharebox on Google+, then click the "Add text" button underneath the photo. Type in something funny, then share and enjoy.
This feature will be rolling out over the next few days -- I hope you enjoy it! :) We'll be keeping our eyes on the stream for the funniest examples, so have fun! #funwithphotos #googleplusupdate
