How to share web-pages to Google+ Pages
The rise of Google+ seems to be limited by the number of extensions/add-ons being developed for it. Probably because G+ is making changes so fast that plugin developers are having a hard time catching up with it. If you noticed, about 1/2 of the available plugins are broken or with bugs because of Google+ constant updates. To my surprise, even a simple social media task such as sharing to a company/website Google+ Page is a chore.
Faced with this problem, I went hunting for a web tools that can do the job, and found Share on Google Plus Page (Chrome extension). Too bad there is only one. I hope to find more to review later on.
There are none for Firefox at the moment. If you find any, please tell me.
Using Share on Google Plus Page, you can update both your personal Google+ profile and your business/brand/product page.
This Chrome extension allows you enter up to 5 Google+ Pages that you owned. After installing, click on ‘Define my Google+ pages’ button to input your Google Plus Page Names & IDs. You only need to do this once. The ID is the string of digits at your Google+ Page URL.
To choose to share a web-page on your Google+ stream or any of your Pages, simply click and select from the drop-down box.
