How to Post to your Google+ Stream Directly from Google Drive?

If you want to post your Google+ stream directly from Google Drive, then make sure the file's sharing settings are listed as 'Public on the web' or 'Anyone with the link'. If you see that your file is private, then your family and friends on Google+ will not be able to access it. Once you shared a file, a thumbnail preview of it will appear in your Google+ stream.

Following are the steps to Post to your Google+ Stream Directly from Google Drive:

  1. Open the file which you want to share.
  2. Copy the file's URL from your web browser's address bar.
  3. Go to & sign in to your account.
  4. Click "Share" button located at the top right corner of the window.
  5. Paste the URL of file into the text box where it says "Share what's new...".
  6. Type the name of individual people or select a circle that you want to share your post with.
  7. Click "Share" button.
  8. This way you can post your Google+ stream directly from Google Drive.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!

PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.

It's AWESOME!! I have tens of thousands of pictures...and they are now successfully uploaded to SmugMug, where they are safely backed up, and I can edit and organize them. If you are hesitating about using PicBackMan, hesitate no longer...try it...and you'll be glad you did!!
