Social media platforms have been released right, left and center lately. FaceBook is still king but contender G+ is to be taken seriously. Youtube is now the second largest search engine in the world. LinkedIn raised over USD8billion with its IPO...
So many of them, how to keep track, how to keep up with the updates?!
At TargetOnlineMarketing.com Social Media Marketing, we have found G++ very helpful to merge Google plus, FaceBook and Twitter. Do not mistake G++ - aka G Plus Plus - for C++ :p
Thanks to G++ we can now sync up our Facebook community and Twitter community, 'cause we have spent a lot of time building them. For ourselves and our good clients. How does it work?
- visit the G++ site - http://gplusplus.me/
- add either their Chrome or Firefox extensions by clicking the “Add” button to download and install the extension
- confirm the installation at your browser level
- then sign in to your Google+ account
- you will see 3 check boxes:Google+, Facebook and Twitter
- all you have to do to enable or disable the stream is to check or uncheck the boxes according to your preferences. You can even disable Google+ and view only the Facebook or Twitter stream via the Google+ interface if you want to.
- In order to activate Facebook, you have to disable the pop-up window blocker
- Then authorize access to Twitter
- once you have granted access to FaceBook and Twitter, you will be brought back to the stream page
- make sure the boxes are checked
- then click the “Refresh Stream” button to go get your Twitter and FaceBook streams.
- entries will be color coded helping out to make head or tail of the streams
- top right, you will find the Twitter of FaceBook icon
- you can also retweet Twitter entries
- and you can also like or comment FaceBook updates directly from your G+
- the main advantage of G++ is the ability to post from Google+, Twitter and FaceBook all at once with one click
- type your update in your Google+ stream
- check the Twitter and FaceBook boxes
- check it out in your streams
Now when are we going to be able to synchronize other social media platforms such as Linkedin, etc?
