How to post to Google+, Twitter, and Facebook at the same time – Being overwhelmed by the current social media yet? If you are on Google+ too, then you must have been wondering how to update your Google+, Twitter, and Facebook status simultaneously. I’m sure Hootsuite, TweetDeck, and other applications are going to add Google+ in, but with Agent G, you can simply add  “Agent G” on the “people to share it with” on Google+ to update your Twitter and Facebook status at the same time. It can’t get any easier than that and this way, you can control which status that you want to share simultaneously without having to install a browser extension or a desktop app.

How to post to Twitter and Facebook from Google+ simultaneously

  1. Go to http://gplus.sagg.im and sign in with your Facebook and/or Twitter account (if you want to post to both social networks, you have to sign in to both of them and do the next instructions for each)
  2. Just follow the instructions on the page (by sending the authentication key to Agent G on Google+, etc). Note that you need to send the Authentication to Agent G as a person (not as/in a Circle)
    Send message to Agen G
  3. Refresh that page and you should see the green ticks if you follow the instructions corretly (both on “Connected to Twitter” and “Connected to Facebook”)
    Sync Google Twitter Facebook simultaneously
  4. To start posting status to the 3 social networks simultaneously, you need to add “Agent G” like you did earlier to authenticate. The status will then be passed on to your Twitter and Facebook at the same time.

Here is an example. I posted a photo of the LED light bulb samples arriving today to be reviewed on my Google+. Unfortunately, sharing status works to all of the social networks but it doesn’t have the picture (or the link). So you may need to upload your pic somewhere else first if you want to share a photo to all of the social networks. Simple status message works fine though, just make sure it’s under 160 characters (Twitter’s limitation).

It may take a minute or two before the status appears on Twitter/Facebook though so wait a bit.

Even though it hasn’t supported sharing photos yet, I think this is good enough when you want to share a simple status message on the 3 major social network at the same time. Syncing Google+ status with Twitter and Facebook is simple with Agent G after the set-up.

    • Hi Chris.. hm.. sorry I didn’t know how to do this. Not even sure if it’s possible. If you can find a contact for the Agent G thing, you might want to ask there

    • No worries, I got it. In Twitter, I went to Settings > Applications. I simply “Revoked Access” to…hmm…now I forget, either “Google+” or “Agent G.”

    • I can no longer post to Facebook from Google+. I didn’t change anything so perhaps Facebook has done something to unsync from G+. Understandable, I suppose.

  1. Thanks, Michael. I wondered whether there was a way to do this. I’d love to send the updates to my FB fan page rather than my personal FB page, but it doesn’t look like I can at this stage.

  2. Lol. Google Plus already seems to be taking over the giants – Facebook and Twitter. I’ve always used the Google Chrome extension which is called something like “Start G” or something. Nice to know another method!

    • Yeah, it has so many millions of users in less than a week and they haven’t even opened up for public, I guess?

      Good to see it’s not another of Google Wave’s failure

  3. I was thinking of developing a similar service to share content among all social networks via one single spot. But the Internet is so damn quick – you think of an idea and it’s available on the monstrous Web. :(

  4. This work very good for web, thanks. Do you know how it works for mobile? The only way to share with Rob McGee is by circle in mobile and to make this work you have to share individually with Rob McGee. Best Regards

  5. Hmmm… any way to do it the other way around? I mean, post something to Twitter and have it show up on my Google+ stream?

    Another note is one should consider that since this is done through sharing with Rob Mcgee (of which there are several, BTW), your privacy has gone to hell.

  6. Great tips micheal, but as i am using networked blog to update my profile on facebook and twitter, is it possible only to update google+ from wordpress.

  7. This post is stupid. Why would you use some other guy’s site and share your information. No need for this. Just go to your facebook page and Twitter page and find out your personalized email address to send your status updates to. Then just add this to the status update email list on google+. It will do the same thing. What I would like to do is be able to post status updates on all sites WITH the pictures or youtube video. Otherwise, its’ just crap, and what’s the point.

    • I know your post is old but I wanted to address it in case others see it right now. The problem is that facebook will detect that you posted to it in this way and wont always count it as a status update. Why is this a problem? Because if you have a friend who is subscribed to you, it wont notify them that you posted anything. I tried this and my wife was asking how come I hadn’t been on facebook for days, so I use tweetdeck for the time being so at least i can update twitter and facebook at once. It also does seem to count my facebook posts as status updates.

  8. Can I sync a Facebook page, twitter and Google+? I’ve linked Facebook page and twitter, so I know that part is possible

  9. I can’t get this thing working.. :| I followed the instruction above but after I post the authentication key and share it with agent G nothing happens.. if I try to link my Facebook account it keeps responding with an error!.
