So many folks have asked me over the years "what do you do at Google?"  I often have to just shrug my shoulders.

Well, the group I worked with (prior to my current team) has published a paper:  I used to be manager of the Borgmaster team.  What's a Borgmaster?  Read the paper.  :-)

On my Android 5/Nexus 5, somehow auto-backup of local folders became enabled (I don't recall enabling it and I don't see a checkbox for it in the Auto Backup settings view).  Now I have hundreds or thousands of local folders listed under Photos > On Device with auto-backup enabled.  Short of going through and disabling auto-backup for each folder individually, is there any way to disable local folder backup altogether?  Thanks.

Not all photos on my iPhone Camera Roll are being uploaded.  This is even when I go into settings and press the button to backup all photos, where I have watched the counter make it through the total count (tried this multiple times—at times, a couple more photos seem to make it over). I have verified that my Google account has plenty of space available. Not even sure where to begin debugging this. Thanks in advance for any answers!

+Yang Zhang do the following
delete all Google apps on your ios device
install only the Google+ app
sign in
set up autobackup
do a backup all
do not let the phone go to sleep
and do not leave that screen whilst it is doing the autobackup of all images. 

When that has finished go here
plus.google.com/photos/autobackup
on a computer
and compare what's on your phone and what's in your autobackup. 

if there is a corrupted or pending image delete it and then run the autobackup again. 

Once completed, you can install the other apps again.

Well, I USE IT ALL THE TIME,  and so do lots of my friends,  and so I hope they can fix it fast and don't stop supporting it.
A developer who spent three years helping create Google+ has written a brutal blog post declaring the tech giant's social network a failure.
