Share WordPress Posts In Google+ Publicly By Jetpack Plugin

If you are not using Jetpack WordPress plugin already, you might want to give it a try. You can read more about advantages of Jetpack plugin in this post. I have been using Jetpack from more than two years now and I have to say that, it saves a lot of my time. I manage multiple blogs and sharing each post in Twitter, Facebook and Google+ manually is impossible. So, I have turned on the Publicize feature of Jetpack. Publicize is a feature in Jetpack by using which you can share your posts automatically to popular social networks like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Tumblr, Path and Google+. So, whenever I post an article, it is automatically shared in Facebook, Twitter and Google+.

By default, Google+ apps settings are set in a way so that your posts would be shared privately to your circles. So, when you have connected your Google+ page with WordPress and have activated Publicize feature, posts will be shared only to your circles in Google+. For example, see this post:
