How To Update Twitter And Facebook On Google+

Want to update Twitter and Facebook on Google+? The following are two ways for your reference:

I. Post to Twitter and Facebook from Google+ directly

Some genius have created two browser extensions for you to post to Twitter and Facebook from your Google+ site:

1. Post to Twitter from Google+ directly

Google+Tweet

Workable for Chrome, Firefox and IE, Google+Tweet is a browser extension for you to integrate Twitter into your Google+.

After installation, you can see a Twitter button near the Home button in the top navigation bar, as you can see from the above image. Clicking the button, you can read your Twitter timeline’s messages and reply, retweet or favorite them, you can send direct messages to your friends, you can update your status with photos, locations, shortened links, and you can also select how frequent the tweets will be refreshed automatically.

But during the test, I found out that the respond speed of Google+Tweet was very slow, and I even failed to share a picture.

2. Post to Facebook from Google+ directly

Google+ Facebook

Developed by the same guys who created Google+Tweet, Google+Facebook is a browser extension for you to integrate Facebook into your Google+, and also workable for Chrome, Firefox and IE.

After installation, you can see a Facebook button near the Twitter button, as you can see from the above image. Clicking the button, you can see your Facebook stream, and you can also update your status with text only in a new pop-up window on the Google+ site.

By the way, the above reviews of Google+Tweet and Google+Facebook are both according to my test in Chrome browser only, there may be some differences when using them in IE or Firefox.

II. Share Google+ posts on Twitter and Facebook

Extended Share for Google Plus

Instead to post to Twitter and Facebook directly, you can also publish something on Google+ first, and then share it on Twitter and Facebook, with the Chrome extension Extended Share for Google Plus, as mentioned before.

After installation, you will see a "Send to" button under every stream post, clicking the button, you can share the Google+ messages (public or limited) on Twitter and/or Facebook.
