Both Facebook and Twitter provide ways to fetch your stream of updates via RSS into an RSS feed reader. Google+ on the other hand doesn’t have any such option. Google+ to RSS is a third-party tool that aims to fill this hole. It lets you create an RSS feed of public Google+ updates and requires your Google+ profile ID, API key and an email address. Private or limited status updates will not show up in the feed though.
If you are wondering where you can locate your Google+ profile ID and what the heck an API key is, the tool has got you covered. On their homepage they have linked to a how-to page they’ve created, that addresses these concerns and helps you locate those ID’s.
