Google+ API (for sharing photos, etc.)

Sharing photos to Facebook and Twitter has been relatively straightforward. For example, Twitter uses OAuth to allow a user to login, thus permitting an app to make tweets and share photos on their behalf.


However, after about 1.5 hours of digging, I haven't figured out how this is done for Google+. Has anyone figured it out? I think I've got the login mechanism working -- which I found pretty confusing. It gives me an access_token. (which it seems to imply is only good for a few hours -- so that is frustrating too)


Not sure whether this is possible or not.  The Google+ docs seem to have specific support for Android and iOS, but I haven't found other mechanisms that I can use.
