Plus Channel

Plus Channel is a simple application that generates an RSS feed containing the public posts of a Google+ account, letting you display them in your blog or site.

You can use this application to generate the RSS feed associated to your account and, in example, use it with TwitterFeed to propagate your public Google+ posts to Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. The generated feed contains the last five public posts of the selected account or page.
