Here’s a new way to automatically send your Google+ posts to Twitter and (ugh) facebook.
I’m on the Mike Elgan diet meaning that almost all of my content is done here on Google+. Then I pipe it automatically to Twitter and facebook.
Linda Lawrey told me about ManageFlitter which is good and it is what most people use. But I think I found something better: Friends+Me.
Up until now I would use ManageFlitter to grab my Google+ posts and send them to Twitter and then facebook’s Twitter app would grab them from there. But as you see in the pic below, that ain’t pretty.
Now Friends+Me sends my posts to both places and formats them very nicely. The posts on facebook look like they were originated there.
Here is why I recommend you give Friends+Me a try:
• The posts on facebook look MUCH better
• Friends+Me checks your feed and posts every 5 minutes. ManageFlitter refreshes every 30 minutes unless you pay. That’s a big deal when I am covering breaking news or encouraging people to check out a live stream, etc. (Friends+Me plans to have a paid tier in the future which will offer 1 minute refreshes. I’d happily pay for that.)
• It can post to your timeline and facebook pages
• It supports Twitter Cards http://goo.gl/CVx3Z
Thanks to Friends+me’s developer Alois Bělaška for urging me to check it out. I have officially made the switch!
