Google Squared

Google Squared

Google Squared (sponsored by Google) is a quick way to gather research facts.For example, if I needed facts about North American Snakes, I could do a Google Squared search.




As you see, Google Squared provides a chart that lists names, images, and scientific description of the snakes. Google Squared also allows you to edit the chart. For example if you wanted to add a column for locations or size/length. You can completely customize the chart to fit your needs. Google has made organizing research facts easier.
