Here's a new way to automatically send your Google+ posts to Twitter and (ugh) facebook.
I'm on the +Mike ElganÂ diet meaning that almost all of my content is done here on Google+. Then I pipe it automatically to Twitter and facebook.
+Linda LawreyÂ told me about +ManageFlitterÂ 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+MeÂ 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:
â€¢ Â The posts on facebook look MUCH better
â€¢ Â 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.)
â€¢ Â It can post to your timeline and facebook pages
â€¢ Â It supports Twitter CardsÂ http://goo.gl/CVx3Z
Thanks to Friends+me's developer +Alois BÄ›laÅ¡kaÂ for urging me to check it out. I have officially made the switch!

So that's why you seem active again on FB 🙂
Good link though. Contemplating whether I should do it or not. I remember the days when I linked Twitter to FB, didn't work very well (not technically – socially).
