Google Plus has sparked off a good number of third-party extensions and online apps. As more and more people adopt Google+, we might find it a little over-whelming to follow many public profiles. A good idea would be to have a RSS feed of that particular Google+ profile, so we can easily follow it via Google Reader or other RSS Readers.
In came to know in a blog post, about plusfeed.appspot which allows creating RSS of Google+ profiles.
Creating RSS Feeds of Google+ Profiles
- First look up the Google+ profile you are looking to visit. Every profile has a unique ID number which is also part of the profile’s URL.
- Just copy that number as shown in the image below. I decided to follow Larry Page (Founder and CEO of Google) on Google+.
- Now append that number to plusfeed.appspot.com/ so it looks something like plusfeed.appspot.com/106189723444098348646.
- This will create a RSS feed of the page, all that is left to do is to add the URL into your Google Reader and you get a feed of the Google+ profile’s posts.
This way we can keep track of all posts of profiles which share a lot of public updates with our Google Reader. You might also want to look-up an easier way to remember the URL of your Google+ profile or a chrome extension to move your Facebook albums to Google+.
