[Tutorial] How To Get Desktop Notifications When You Receive Updates On Google+

Not long ago I wrote a tutorial where I showed you how to enable Facebook notification on your Windows desktop and in same time how to integrate it with your iChat in Mac OS X. However not everyone prefer Facebook and with so many users deciding to use Google+ there is probably plenty of you that want to do the same thing with Google+ updates, so that why I decided to show you how you can receive latest updates from your Google+ profile directly in your Windows 7 desktop.

Step 2: Once you have successfully installed G+ Notifier and start the application choose whether you want to have automatic updates and how do you want application notify you when new updates occur. Once you are finished with settings click OK to save changes.
