How to Create Google+ Posts via SMS Messages

We usually use our mobile phone’s SMS messages to chat or to text any nice message to a friend, girlfriend(s)/boyfriend(s), etc. We do this chatting in our everyday life. But have you ever thought that you could also use your mobile phone’s SMS messages to update your status on social networking sites? This seems to be quite interesting to hear. Yes, it’s indeed true and Google+ has made this possible by rolling out this awesome feature for all of its users. Using this feature you can easily share your posts on your Google+ circles. You just have to enable Allow posting by SMS on your Google+ account. Once you activate this feature, you can update your status on Google+ as per your wish.
