Ever wanted to post to Twitter or Facebook (or LinkedIn) from Google+? It’s certainly a cool feature, although I’m not a massive fan of posting to multiple social networks at the same time. There are many ways you can post to Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and other social networks all at the same time. However this is missing the fact that Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn are very different social networks. For example, do all your friends on Facebook really want to see all your Tweets as Facebook updates? Do your LinkedIn contacts really want to see your Facebook updates?
I’ve mentioned Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, but what about Google+? Google’s social media platform is still the new kid on the block, and their API(the system that lets applications talk to and retrieve information from Google+) is still in its early stages. This means it is currently very difficult to do any kind of syncing to and from Google+.
How To Add Share Button To Google Plus ?
Google+ does not have a direct way sharing your posts to Twitter and Facebook, this Google Chrome extension will add a link “Send to …” to each post. Once clicked, it will bring up an internal dialog asking you where to share your post. If you just request one share link, you just choose it, for example Twitter, and it will add a link called “Share on Twitter” to every post. Kudos to Software Engineer Mohamed Mansour for developing the new Google Plus Chrome extension. Here, we go…
