Crossrider, an Israeli tech company, has developed an application that allows users of Google+ to also view their feeds from Facebook, Reuters reported.
The application, Google+Facebook, was developed by Crossrider last week, whose main business is developing Internet browser add-on extensions, and already has more than 100,000 downloads, Koby Menachemi, the company's co-founder and chief executive, told Reuters.
It's something we created in less than a day, Menachemi told Reuters. The product is not perfect, yet you can view (Facebook) streams and update your status while on Google+.
Crossrider's free application will add an icon to Google+, allowing users to view their Facebook pages. Even though a lot of people would prefer to allow a simple importing of Facebook friends, photos and other personal information into Google+, it can't be done because of Facebook's terms of service.
It's a site within a site, Menachemi told Reuters, adding that the company would be willing to make improvements. If users want a feature to post updates on both networks, we will. If they want to comment on their Facebook screen, we will do it.
The popularity of the Google+Facebook application has been higher than expected. We didn't do any PR. It was just one tweet and one Facebook share and people picked it up, Menachemi told Reuters.
