The browsers are general-purpose applications that meet a set of functional requirements that meet most users’ needs. Obviously, no browser is perfect. In these cases, extensions can be a good resource to complement the functions of your browser and give it some new features and utilities that we consider useful.
In the welter of extensions that we can find for Firefox or Google Chrome , there are a number of these that we can bring much more to the exciting world of social networking facilities both for us when we contact our friends or to us something simpler access to information that is in our interest or in connection with our work. If we think of a social network that gives us access to a wealth of information, surely, Twitter is one of the names that we first come to mind, a place where we can follow our friends, businesses, media or leaders information and access a wealth of information and news.
Looking to improve our experience on Twitter and optimize the time spent in this network, we can find a number of extensions to our browsers that contribute to this end. With that in mind, today we will take a moment to learn 5 extensions for Google Chrome with which to enjoy over Twitter:
One of the weaknesses of Google with Google + was not to develop an API that allows third-party applications can connect to this network to send publications or check the publications of our friends. Except for Google +1 button, the interaction from the outside is somewhat limited so if we can not integrate Google + applications or services of others, maybe we can do the opposite and insert other social networks in Google +. Following this idea we find in the Chrome Web Store an extension called Twitter for Google G + Plus to merge into thetimeline of Google + , in addition to the publications of the Google Network,the tweets of our timeline
- Following Google +, one of the mechanisms of external interaction is through this social network is +1 button, which is used in a manner equivalent to “Like” on Facebook. Although it may seem “unnatural”, there are certain messages that we read on Twitter that deserve wider dissemination than a retweet and, for example, could spread to other social networks where we have presence. With this idea, +1 Tweets inserted in the web version of Twitter a +1 button for each tweet in our timeline so that we can share them via Google +.
- As with Tweets +1 can share the messages that we like our Twitter + Google profile, and therefore increase the potential audience for these messages and contribute to its dissemination, we can do something similar through our Facebook profile by extending Twitter + Facebook Like to add a button “like” all tweets to which we have access from the web version of Twitter.
- One of the more types of content that circulate in social networks, as well as the links are the photographs and, in fact, are more often content to capture the attention of users. While we are able to open the tweets and see the larger, the images attached to messages from services such as Instagram, there are other pictures, such as profile, requiring open in a new page . With the idea that we can zoom on any image to be published on Twitter, extension Twitter Photo Zoom offers a preview of large images over which the mouse is hovered and these will open in the sideband interface contrary to the image location (not to cover it).
- Since Twitter did not renew the agreement for access to its search engine in real time with Google, is more difficult to find within the search engine results of Mountain View, the tweets that are posted on Twitter. With the idea of complementing the search results, we can use the extension Twitter Search Results on Google to insert in the top of Google results, results from Twitter and thus, access results in real time.
