Despite of Google plus being one of the important Social networking site for Bloggers (It improves search engine ranking), I hate it due to lack of very few third-party applications, to automate the process. Earlier I have shared How to Auto publish blog posts to Google plus pages and today, I’m talking about Doshare chrome extension which will let you post anything from Chrome browser and also let you schedule status update on Google plus.
Using Doshare to Schedule Google plus Status :
Doshare is not like other third-party application like Hootsuite or buffer, which works on server-side. Means, when you schedule anything, your status update is stored on server and it will be posted at given time. Doshare chrome extension is a client site add-on and it works only when your chrome browser is open, you are connected to internet and most important you are logged into Google plus. For an internet user like me, who is always connected to Internet, this addon is very useful to keep my Google plus profile updated and active.

Go ahead and download and install this free and useful extension from Chrome store. Once you have this extension installed, click on Doshare icon next to chrome wrench icon and it will open a post editor for Google plus. This addon also offers post scheduling to Google plus page, once you are on Post editor section of Doshare, click on settings icon and you can set your preferences.
Now, you can easily change profile and also set the privacy level of status updates, like we normally do while using Google plus. If you need to schedule status update on Google plus, simply click on Schedule tab and add the date and time and your post will go live at the scheduled time.
Once you have scheduled Google plus status update, simple share it and it will be published at the desired time. Now, here is interesting bit, you can also save drafts and you can edit them later and publish it. If you are on a webpage and you click on Doshare icon, it will automatically pull the article title, image and description and makes it easier to use.
