That Was Quick: Chrome Extension Adds Facebook, Twitter Sharing To Google+

Good First Sign: I Have A Strong Desire To Keep Using Google+

I’ve also been playing around with Google+ (and the neat mobile Web app) this morning and so far, I think it has some potential (not everyone agrees).

But people like me tend to use more than one social networking service, so I was happy to see someone has already built a Chrome extension that lets Google+ users push posts to Facebook and Twitter. It’s a little buggy from time to time, but overall, it works as advertised.

What it does is add a ‘Send to …’ option to Google+ posts to allow you to repost anything that appears in your stream right on your Facebook and Twitter profiles.

My main gripe with it is that you sometimes need to hit refresh in order to see the link.

Of course, you need to be a Google+ user to see shared posts; note that the project is still in ‘field trial’ and invitation-only at this point.

In the future, developer Mohamed Mansour says, the extension will enable people to instantaneously share Google+ posts on Twitter and Facebook sans dialog box (and perhaps more social networks). The source code is available on GitHub, by the way.
