Serious Gaming With Google Plus Cross-Posting

After a couple of days playing with Google+ basics (I must confess that rounding up my circles has consumed most of the time), I came across the Start Google+ Extension for Chrome, which helps to increase productivity across Google+, Twitter and Facebook networks, especially in terms of my Serious Games articles cross-posting.

Start Google+ is designed to help you jump right into Google's new social network. Here are a few things that the plug-in can do:

* Automatically post to Facebook AND Twitter whenever you share something on Google Plus (you can turn this on/off from within the share window in Google Plus)

* Add a Gmail inbox notifier to the top bar, so that you do not have to keep a Gmail tab open. Clicking on the Gmail icon shows a menu with the unread messages that let you access your emails directly inside Google+.

* And if you visit Streamified (prior Start Google+) you can also transfer or sync your photos from Facebook, and get a Google+ Nickname

Here is a consolidated path:

Download Streamified for your internet browser (either Chrome or Firefox)
The browser extension not only makes run faster, but also lets you share any page, link, or image to all your streams with the click of a button. View your streams and post to them from within Google Plus, as if they were all a part of Google Plus.
