    I'm not having much luck finding a script or library that will allow me to post to my G+ page from php. There's a group called nextscripts that offers this service, but they want $100 a year which is crazy for something that should be open source. From what I'm reading Google has only given write api access to select groups, and I think it's bullshit that these groups are turning around and forcing you to buy it.

    If anyone knows of a free open source library I can work with it would be appreciated. I'm trying to post custom messages to my google+ business page based on user activity w/ my site.

    Last time I checked (but it was a long time ago), there was no G api available for this besides for specific whitelisted partners.

    I bought the 100$ a year from Nextscripts,
    it kind of sucks. I am very disappointed with it, it has many bugs and no support.
    Any other API's that can do Facebook groups, pages, G+, twitter and Pinterest?
    Thanks.

    that's crazy, there is no good API to do this? someone here should write one, sell it and make some good money, really.
    I'd pay for a good API for all popular networks.

    The issue is Google does not have an official API for this. Even if you build one it will be a Tom & Jerry style chase with Google. The only method out there is to use Javascript to do this but even that is only good at times not consistently.

    Google does have an API for Google+, but it's read-only except to specific partners. They haven't announced opening it to the public anytime soon.

    True. I meant their API to post to pages is not public yet. It is approval based and they don't even reply to your requests normally.
