The butterfly and the flutist
For those of you who know how much I am in awe of butterflies ... you will understand my appreciation of this amazing occurrence.  Could you continue your performance if you were joined by a butterfly?

Recovery process for deleted Google+ Pages

Have you  ever resisted deleting a Google+ page because you were afraid you would delete the wrong one?  Well ... now there is a recovery option that may put your mind at ease.  (Manage deleted pages)

Many of us have the following questions.   What additional questions do you have?

* Is the feature only available to the Page Owner?
* How long does the page remain recoverable?
* Does this apply to pages that were deleted prior to the feature becoming available?

Thanks to +Mike Blumenthal​​ for the write-up and screen captures.

Edit: November 28, 2015
The path for recovering deleted pages has changed. Please see the following post by +Peggy K​​, where she outlines this process.

How to restore a deleted Google+ Page (and its YouTube channel) at Google My Business

Trouble changing your Profile image?

Up until recently, some users were able to resolve this issue by using the Desktop instructions that +Luiz Fernando has provided, below.

However, some users are no longer able to use the Desktop solution.  The good news is that you may be able to do so from an Android or iOS device, instead.
Having trouble changing your profile photo?

If you are having problems when trying to change your Google+ profile photo, follow these instructions:

Upload the photo that you want to make your profile photo to another album, then visit the page of this photo, tag yourself in the photo and click the profile icon at the top right of the page.

Open the Photos app, visit one of your photos, toch the three dots menu in the top right corner, select the option "Set as" and then "Profile Photo".

Open the Google+ app, touch the menu icon at the top left and select Photos. Then touch the photo you want to make your profile photo, touch gear icon in the top right corner, select the option "Set as" and then "Profile photo".

Google+ Profile Names Policy Changes
Struggled with the idiosyncrasies of the Google+ Profile Names Policies over the years?  Take a look at the new and improved version!

Note: With very few exceptions there are no more restrictions on what name you can use

Create or change your Google+ profile name

Add a nickname or other name to your Google+ profile
When we launched Google+ over three years ago, we had a lot of restrictions on what name you could use on your profile. This helped create a community made up of real people, but it also excluded a number of people who wanted to be part of it without using their real names. 

Over the years, as Google+ grew and its community became established, we steadily opened up this policy, from allowing +Page owners to use any name of their choosing to letting YouTube users bring their usernames into Google+. Today, we are taking the last step: there are no more restrictions on what name you can use. 

We know you've been calling for this change for a while. We know that our names policy has been unclear, and this has led to some unnecessarily difficult experiences for some of our users. For this we apologize, and we hope that today's change is a step toward making Google+ the welcoming and inclusive place that we want it to be. Thank you for expressing your opinions so passionately, and thanks for continuing to make Google+ the thoughtful community that it is.

Switch your Local/Places page to a Brand/Company Page
Businesses have been asking, for ages, to be able to convert their non-local business page (brand or company page) to their Local/Places Page.  

Up until today, we have had to tell them that the page types couldn't be changed.

Finally, Google has come through for you.  You can now connect your verified local page to your non-local brand/company page, switching the page types of the two pages.  

Your brand/company page (and its posts, circles and followers) can become a local verified page, and you can choose to delete what used to be the local verified page.

Please see the following post in the Google and Your Business Help Forum and the related Help Center Article.  If you have questions about the process, you can seek assistance/clarification in the Google and Your Business Help Forum.

How do I connect a non-local Google+ page to Google Maps?
