Most bloggers prefer to publish their blog posts on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc, using RSS Feeds. Using Google Plus as a tool for sharing content is not an easy job. You have to manually manage your Google+ pages, since the site does not support direct management of a page through multiple accounts. The sole purpose was to keep the spammers at bay.
Though this is good from security standpoint, it can ruin business of many people, bloggers in particular. They are left with little scope of sharing influential content with readers and followers. Here is a tip that will help you publish your blog posts in Google+ using the RSS feed. To do that, you will have to use HootSuite, the multi-account social networking dashboard.
