Google Plus: Cross-posting To Facebook Without An Extension

Google Plus has become a great place to share and discuss how to make Google Plus “play friendly” with other social networks. Unfortunately keeping up with the dozens of extensions and apps and ensuring their safety is time consuming. Many of the solutions are focused on cross-posting to Facebook, so here is a quick trick to post to both Google Plus and Facebook without using any new extensions or apps. It won’t work for photos or lengthy updates (50 characters is the max), but it worth taking 5 minutes to set up. 

1. On Facebook, go to your Account Settings, and select the Mobile tab.

2. Click “Go To Facebook Mobile”.

3. At the bottom of the page, you will see the option to: Upload via Email.
  • Copy the email address specific to your Facebook account 
  • Note: do not share this “secret” email address with anyone – notice I am not sharing it here

3. On Google Plus, create a new Circle. 
  • Name your Circle. I named mine Facebook.
  • Add a “new person” by adding the emaiI you selected on Facebook.

Now when you want to update your status or share something on Facebook, simple select your Facebook Circle.  You can also send updates to Facebook only within Google Plus by selecting only the Facebook Circle. 

Enjoy, and let me know if you have any questions!  Of course – you can find me many places online, including Google Plus!
