One big reason people are hesitant to make the switch from Facebook to Google+ is that they’ve invested so much time curating it. Some people literally have thousands of photos, neatly (or not so neatly) organized into dozens of photo albums. This has taken most people years to accomplish. It’s only natural that they wouldn’t want to have to start all over again from scratch. Luckily there is a solution!
One website has taken this process and streamlined it to make importing your photos from Facebook to Google+ as easy as 1, 2, 3! Check it out:
SGPlus.me is a site that allows you to put your social networks (Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ of course) into one place. James has already covered the simultaneous monitoring and publishing capabilities, but not the photo migrating capabilities. The process is super simple.
- You must be using Chrome, Firefox, or Safari, download the browser extension.
- Log in with Google+.
- Connect to Facebook to import your photos to Google+.
- Show some love, and +1 the page! (optional)
That’s it! Hoo-rah! That’s how easy it is to bring your Facebook photos into Google+. Now, once you’ve done that, you can even make them more awesome by using Google+ photo editing feature!
