In case with Google Plus, it is hard to ignore the start-up as it sends you so many invites to join that you really “have” to give it a try.
Until you decide which social media network to stick with (or in case you make up your mind to get involved in all three), here are the three Google Chrome extensions to mix your major social media networks (Google+, Twitter, Facebook).
Extended Share: Twitter, Facebook, and More
is a simple tool that lets you quickly share updates from your Google+ stream to your Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Tumblr profiles.
Immediately after having it installed, you’ll be able to set the networks you would like to share to:
After you have it set up, you can see tiny links “Share on” added to your Google Plus stream – click it to quickly update your timeline on another network:
Helper for Google Plus: Twitter
Helper for Google+ is a sweet clutter-free Google Chrome extension that adds a few really handy options to your Google+ dashboard.
1. Share Google Plus Shares on Twitter
The tool adds a handy “Tweet” link to each of the updates on your dashboard. Clicking it lets you quickly (provided you are signed-in to Twitter) send an update to Twitter with #googleplus hashtag.
Translate Any Tweet
We all have a lot of social media friends from various countries around the world. Helper for Google+ helps to easier communicate with them: another interesting feature is the ability to easily translate any Google+ update using the little “Translate” link:
The language to translate the message to is configured in the extension settings.
Besides the two fun features above, the extension adds the ability to search Google+ from the Omni bar, creates desktop notification of new Google+ updates (with sound) and lets you add linked hashtags to better organize your own shares.
The extension settings lets you disable any of the above mentioned features:
3. Google+Tweet: Twitter

Google+Tweet is a Google Chrome extension (also available for FireFox and Internet Explorer) that lets you cross-promote your friends’ Google Chrome shares on Twitter.
Once you have it installed, you’ll need to authorize the app from your Google+ dashboard using your Twitter credentials:
Once you are done, you’ll be able to load recent Tweets of your Twitter friends right within your Google+ home. Besides, you’ll be able to compose a new Tweet there and share your (or you Google+ friends’) updates on Twitter:
