About 10 million people have enlisted them in Google plus after two weeks of its launch which is quite impressive. But, Google plus is still in project phase and not everyone is tolerated in this social network without any invitation.
If you are already a user of Google plus, you would like to enhance your G+ experience and become an advanced Google plus user. There is a way to get Google plus notifications while you are not actually in Google plus.

When you are in Google plus, you can get all the notifications from the sleek notification bar, even you can get that while using other Google services like Gmail, Google reader, Google Docs etc. But there are some standpoints when you may like to receive the Google plus notifications without opening your Google plus profile.
Surplus is a Google Chrome extension which catches all the Google plus notification updates from outside the Google plus i.e you’ll get all the Google plus updates when you are not in Google plus, furthermore, when you are using Facebook, Twitter or any website.
With Surplus, you won’t have to open your Google plus profile every time you want to check for any new one. It grabs the real-time notifications from your Google plus profile.
Not only the notifications, you can even share your messages with out going to Google plus profile. Just click the Share button on the surplus notification board.
Here you will get all things similar as Google plus. You can select the visibility of the shared item as same as you do in Google plus as well as choose whether to send the message as email to a person(email address) who is not yet a Google plus user.
This pretty handy extension helped me a lot as I don’t like to open Google plus profile every time only to know whether anybody commented on my posts, or some body shared some thing with me.
