How to Connect Google+ to Facebook and Twitter with SGPlus?

October 8, 2011

connect twitter and facebook to google plusJust today, I stumbled upon this nice browser extensions called Start Google Plus (also known as SGPlus). It’s a nice browser plugin that allows you to run your social networks (Google+, Twitter and Facebook) all from one place.

How? All you have to do is download the free browser extension and install sgplus-twitter-facebook-googleplus.png like any other. Simply follow the relevant link, either to Google ChromeSafari or Firefox plugin.

Then once installed, log onto Google+ and authorize both your Twitter and Facebook accounts.

Once you’ve done that you can now start customizing the streams. There are two different ways you can choose to view the stream.

SGPLUS - Merge Feed and Show Feed on SparksNotice the “Merge Feed in Main G+ Stream” and “Show Feed Underneath Sparks” options.The first lets you view all your social networks in a single stream on your Google Plus homepage. The second adds a menu item, just below the Sparks menu, to show JUST the feed from this social network.

You can also tell how long it has been since your feed from this social network has  been updated by looking at the “Feed Last Updated” field.

Another feature I really like is the ability to post status updates to all three services directly from Google+.

Of course, you can also reply to posts, Like on Facebook, Retweet, and more, right from within the stream. Sweet right?

If you want everything in one place, install SGPlus now and let me know how you like it on the comment box below! :)
