Get Facebook and Twitter feeds in Google+
Micro-bloggers can import their feed and have full access to other features using Google+Tweet. Developed by Bruno Barbieri, the browser extension adds a Twitter button to your page.
To set it up, use Twitter's authentication app to log in to your account and grant access to Google+. Once everything is set up, there will be a Twitter icon next to the Stream button on your Google+ homepage. This extension, powered by My Tweet Place, is fully functional. You can send tweets, view your timeline and see @replies.
Facebook users have a similar service called Google+Facebook. Developed by Crossrider, the browser extension uses Facebook Connect to load your news feed. While you can post status updates and see your feed within Google+, the features are limited. There is no access to the like button, comments or photo albums. This is ideal if you're looking for a quick fix.
