Update Facebook from Google+ without extension

I posted a method to using +Agent G to perform cross post from Google+ to Facebook and Twitter earlier. However, the former method requires granting permission to Facebook or/and Twitter.

There is yet another method - making use of the unique Facebook mobile email address which all Facebookers will have.

Step 1: Find out your unique Facebook mobile address.

Go to http://www.facebook.com/mobile/. This email address would look like this xxxxx@m.facebook.com.

Step 2: Create a new Circle and include the noted email address.

Step 3: Cross post!

Now just post as you normally would but include your newly created circle in the post and check the notify by email checkbox. With this option set, Google+ will send an email to the @m.facebook.com email address, thus eventually making a cross post on your Facebook.

NOTE: It seems only the first 50 characters get posted on Facebook.
