Google+ to Chatter



You knew it was coming sooner or later! We’ve done Twitter to Chatter and Facebook to Chatter so we’ve just been waiting for Google to make the Google+ API available to kick this one off.

This challenge involves integrating Google+ to Chatter. With very simple setup, a salesforce user should be able to make it so any post they make to Google+ with a specific hashtag (#ch) will also be posted to chatter.

E.g. to Google+ I post “Had a great customer meeting today in lima, ohio, check out this link! #ch” would be posted to Chatter as me.

This is very similar to our Facebook to Chatter challenge. Take a look at the video that accompanied the submission. See the Getting Started on the Google+ API article for more info.


The app can run all in salesforce or on another preferred cloud platform (Heroku, AWS, Cloud Foundry, App Engine, etc.). Actual passwords should not be stored - OAuth is required.

Simple and elegant win over complicated with many parts everytime. Provide as much functionality as the Google+ API allows you to.

Must have adequate test coverage (75%+) for any Apex code.


Upload all your source code as a zip and provide any documentation and/or instructions that are needed. Please be clear and concise with any setup instructions.

An SWF video of your application using Jing would also be helpful but not required.

A unmanaged package for installation and testing is not required but would also be appreciated if including Apex code.

Your submission will be judged by a panel of peers based upon this criteria. If you would like to request an extension, please read Can challenge deadlines be extended for more time? on our FAQ. We do not want to grant extensions unless there is a valid reason.


See Getting Started on the Google+ API for more details on the API.

I would imagine that the communication would be from Google+ side to Salesforce side, i.e. a G+ post would result in a chatter post. For this to happen, the component would have to be installed on the G+ side. Am I missing something? Regards, Shashi

Not sure of the exact functionality but we were imagining something like an app that queries/polls the G+ API and then inserts Chatter records into Does that make sense?

it will be ...........
ajayjha, Sep 28, 2011 at 06:01 AM reply
Yes it does. I was looking at it from the other perspective, i.e. on G+ post, chatter posts are created. Instead what is required is to make periodic queries through G+ API and insert chatter posts. Thanks for the clarification Jeff.
