I’ve tried this today, but it doesn’t seem to work (anymore?)….. Any idea?

Step 2 fails for me. When I try to login with Facebook, I get the message: “An error occurred with G+ agent. Please try again later.”

Hi Frank, Earlier today +Agent G had problem syncing posts with Facebook but now its fixed. If you still face some issue you can use this alternate method to post to Facebook from Google Plus.

Hi Tony, You can try now and it should work. If you still face some issue you can also use this alternate method to post to Facebook from Google Plus.

Excellent!

I was thinking of sync between G+ and Fb. Seems to be an easy ans secure way… And the best part is that it allows you which post to post on fb.
