Just spent a very pleasant half hour trying to find a simple way to share a post that I do on G+ onto FB so that I do not have to go on to each platform and post.

Stupidly I had thought that this would be a simple process but no it's not it seems!

Does anyone have a suggestion or method that they use to achieve this? Being a bit tight, I don't want to spend any money on plugins/apps/software to do do this, but it seems that Friends+me is the only simple solution.

How naive of me to think it would be a case of click a button or do a right click on a menu to achieve the magic - computers!!!! pah!!!

On your Google+ post, after you have published it, there is a share button in the bottom right hand corner. Click on that and you have the option to share on Facebook and Twitter or to copy the link to share manually elsewhere.

I would recommend using something like buffer.

The free version allows you to plugin all of your social media account and set up a que of posts so you simply select what accounts you want the content to be posted too.

Thanks for the heads up Debbie. At first I didn't see the share button as there was only an 'add a comment' box. When I went to G+ without being logged in, then I saw the share icon.

It is a step forward, but still a bit of a faff - unless I am doing something wrong. Is this how you do it Debbie?

Friends plus me. I used it for a while but don't devote much time to G+ currently. https://friendsplus.me/

Debbharris... looks like Buffer is the answer for me at the moment - unless someone has an alternative magic key?
