Innovative idea to organize information-Google Tip


Most of us directly get to the Google search engine and look for solutions whenever we encounter problems related to Google's services including Gmail, Maps, Chrome, and YouTube. We visit various websites and keep hunting them until we get the best solution to our problems.

But to facilitate your experience with its products and services, Google has come up with a website - Google Tips - that includes tips related to its wide range of services. Users can search for tips by a service/product.

Tips are presented in the form of cards. Find a card based on your needs and flip it over to learn more. For instance, one of the tips under the Android sections is "Never lose contact with your contacts." The moment you click on any card, it turns over and comes up with a detailed tutorial describing how to use a particular tip.

Why active voice in technical writing?

Active voice makes it clear who is doing what. In an active sentence, the person that is acting is the subject. Passive sentences obscure or omit the sentence subject.

Use passive voice when the sentence object is more important than the subject. The active voice is generally easier to read.

Examples (subject, object)

Before: Our results will be discussed.
After: We will discuss our results.

Before: Wolverine was made to be a weapon.
After: The government made Wolverine. Wolverine is a weapon.
