facebook and twitter on Google+

Make Google+ all in one: Cross post to Facebook, Twitter

A Blogger and a computer programmer who goes by the name Zane Claes has developed a nice handy extension for the Google Chrome browser. It is called as Start G+. Basically what the extension does is, it allows you to post to Facebook and Twitter directly from Google+.

Start Google+ interface

You just have to authorize the extension from Google+ and then you are good to go.

Here are some of the top features of this extension:

  • Gather your Facebook and Twitter streams seamlessly into the Google+ stream. The stream includes all videos, photos and links which are normally shared on Facebook or Twitter.
  • Automatically share updates and post contents to Facebook and Twitter when shared on Google+. This makes your content visible on all three social networks simultaneously, therefore no need to waste time switching from Google+ to Facebook and vice versa.
  • The extension also adds a small Gmail notifier onto the top bar. Clicking it will reveal all your unread e-mail instantly.
  • ZDNet has brought to our light a very cute app which can be used after installing this application i.e. Convert Facebook to Google+. With this app you can easily sync all your photos to Google+ and share them with your Google+ friends!

Twitter Bookmarklet

Most of us would have forgotten this method of tweeting just because of the advent of add-ons and extensions. At least I did, in the beginning. What’s special about the official twitter Bookmarklet is that it is the only way so far to use t.co links in your posts other than the tweet button.
