Scheduling posts at Google+


I recently ran into this blog post by Louise Myers, a social media and graphics artist and I just had to share it here.

I’ve been trying to figure out how to schedule posts to my client’s Google+ profiles and it is not supported by Hootsuite. The only way you can schedule posts for them is if they have a Google+ page as I do.

I am sharing this almost verbatum:

Want to schedule posts on Google Plus?

GooglePlus hasn’t seemed eager to allow scheduling.

I was aware of two great scheduling tools that include scheduling for GooglePlus Business Pages ONLY:


If you have a G+ Business Page and that you’d like to schedule (and your other social channels too), I recommend you check out these tools. I use and love both. HootSuite is my mainstay and sanity saver.

But neither allows posting to G+ personal profiles. And neither do Instagram or IFTTT (2 more sanity savers!).

I thought Google plus didn’t allow offsite posting, until I discovered DoShare.

DoShare is a Chrome extension that lets you write and schedule posts on Google Plus Pages and personal profiles!

It features:

  • Easily share links to Google+ from any tab on Google Chrome
  • Create a post, and schedule it for later. DoShare will automatically send it
  • Supports sharing to circles, +mentions, notifying circle, link sharing, reshares, and photo uploads
  • Supports sharing to Google+ communities
  • Supports Hashtag autocomplete
  • Allows you to share a comment from the Google+ stream
  • Bring out your inner author with a distraction free rich text editor
  • Save a draft now, edit it into a post later
  • Share a post directly from the stream
  • Share a post directly from the notifications panel
  • Quickly share to your personal page from your page’s stream and notifications
  • Supports Multiple Google login
  • Supports automatic numbering of public posts
  • Automates creating of polls on Google+

I’ve just started using this tool for myself and clients. It really works!
