Google Plus Naming Policy Help:
 
My company is using Google Apps for Gmail, Google Voice and Google Plus. We have a Technical Support account that we use to interact with our clients called "Technical Support"  this account has been suspended.

The email address is support@domain.com.
The display name for the account is Technical Support 

We tried changing the name of the Technical Support account to "John Doe" in Google plus however this changed the display name on the email account as well as the name in all other Google services like Hangouts. Its also not at all representative of what the account is used for.

I have tried appealing several times with links to our website however these have been rejected. I see that there are many many other Google Plus Profiles with similar names. How were these profiles able to get around the naming convention?

What is the best way to Generic name for our Technical Support account?

+Alan Shurafa The solution for the posts is simple: share them from the Page, not a profile. I'm sure about Hangouts because I do comparatively little with them.

Apparently Google+ Photos album photo limits have been increased to 2000! This happens to be exactly how many I need for several of my larger albums. Thanks Google!

Looks like this functionality BREAKS the ability to sync with Picasa. As soon as I created Albums with over 1000 pictures I started getting generic sync errors.

Google Cars are now safer than human drivers! This is happening even faster than expected. Now the only road blocks are human resistance to the idea and price. In 5-10 years we may actually start to see these on the road.

Picasa and Google Plus Photo Sync Troubleshooting:

Looks like we have two MAJOR bugs with Picasa and Google Plus Albums.

1. Google Plus now allows you to create online albums with a limit of 2000 photos per Album (Up from a previous limit of 1000). Unfortunately after the initial upload from Picasa you get a generic error when trying to sync albums larger then 1000 photos. (The resolution is to make sure all your Google Plus albums that sync to Picasa have less than 1000 photos in them) 

2. Google Awesome creates really cool photos that stitch together more than one photo of the same person. This then sometimes gets tagged with the same person multiple times. When this happens Picasa automatically turns off the sync without any type of error message. (Go through every picture in the album and remove duplicate face matches)
This post helped me troubleshoot this issue: sync to web won t stay enabled | picasaresources

I have literally spent days working these cryptic bugs out. Lets hope that Google releases an update to Picasa some time soon. Alternately I would be happy to work directly with Google Plus if it offered an option to search AND manage IPTC / XMP tags efficiently as well as a nice way to store the photos locally for backup (ideally with an option to edit them offline ala picasa :-)

I am looking for clarification on the maximum number of photos you can have in any Album. For years this limit has been 1000. I accidentally uploaded a very large album yesterday that had 5k+ in then and it uploaded 2000 of them! Is this the new official limit? When was this change made? I am looking for some official documentation on this. I tried Googling it but have not been able to find any references.

Hey Google What Ever Happened to Your "Dont be Evil" Mantra? Killing off Google Apps Free along with Activesync support for ALL free accounts is a pretty sinister move. Very unGoogle like...

Looking for suggestions for a viable alternative. Looks like Outlook.com has some potential. I will try it out with a test domain to see how it goes...
