Extremely useful details to include:

- Links to any Profiles or Pages involved
- Browser (and version) and OS you’re using
- Android or iOS App
- Any extensions enabled
- Does disabling extensions help the issue?
- Time issue last occurred
- Error messages you’re receiving
- Screenshots

(This post was ghost banned at the official Google plus help community)
I'm irritated by the consistent censorship of my comments to posts. My comments are often ghost banned. I can't have a discussion on Google+ (or YouTube). Sometimes my comments are intermittently ghost banned in a post so I can't appropriately respond or my comment seems unconnected because my previous comment couldn't be seen. This also happens to my and others comments on YouTube as well.
I moderate a community that has over 100,000 members, so I see all the posts that have been ghost banned, flagged by the Google spam filters. It is enormous. Furthermore, about 80% of flagged posts are NOT spam. That is a horrid record. The worst part is that most users don't even realise that their posts or comments are only seen by themselves.
I'm writing this to inform other users of this little known problem and with the hope that perhaps a moderator with direct connections to Google will pass on the information about the problem with the Spam Filter algorithm.
Users of Google plus, if you make a comment or a post and you get no response, you may have been ghost banned.
In the community I moderate, I am considering to inform those who have been ghost banned who have not actually posted spam.
Google Spam filters have no need to be so vigorous. Moderators can deal with the communities they moderate.
My goal is to inform others of this issue.

That's true. I hope they start doing that. However, I'm just a moderator, not the owner. Even the owner has just under 2000 followers.

Download all your pictures from Google+

Use Google Takeout for all:

Go to https://www.google.com/settings/takeout and login

- Click "Select none" then scroll down to "Google photos"
- click on the grey arrow next to "All photo albums"
- choose either "Include all photo albums" or "Select photo albums"
- click into the box (a green check mark will appear)
- At the bottom of the page, click "Next"
- Choose how you want to get the data ("File type" and "Delivery method"), then click "Create archive"

Selecting albums you can choose which ones to download.

Why does the Media make up things?

They are killing Google+ off for an umpteenth time...

#GooglePlus  
 
Google+ Is Alive and Well Despite Persistent Media Reports

"NEWS ANALYSIS: Repeated news media claims that Google+ is on the verge of extinction appears to be a delusion caused by a social media paradox called the "majority illusion."

A chorus of tech journalists this week is saying that Google is phasing out its social network, Google+.

Where did they get this juicy nugget of information?

Well, they made it up."


"There are two things at play here. The first factor is Google+ itself. The second is the strategy to integrate Google services into Google+. The integration is being phased out. Google+ is not.

The press is confusing these two facts..."

+Kirk M I generally dislike the phrase "perception is reality" - but sometimes it applies.  I agree that the reports of G+ death are simply click bait or tabloid lies.  However, G+ was created as a social media platform, and as such is going to be compared to Facebook by most people, or to MySpace and Orkut by the older people.  At inception, G+ was pretty different from FB, but over time they have evolved towards each other as to what features they offer, from what I hear. [ I've never used FB, Myspace, Orkut, or Twitter - just G+. ]

General G+ discussion  - 
 
So after being warned about spamming (whatever that is now a days) I adjusted my sharing habits. I share my webcomic posts to 4 (or less) groups 2x's a day - 5 hours apart, for a total of 51 groups a week, nowhere near the limit of groups allowed. I also started sharing art unrelated to my webcomic in order to contribute to the my groups beyond my own interests. I only add people that interact with my comic posts, and at a measured rate. Not a single person has complained to me, and I assure you, if they did I would stop. I'm not trying to waste my time. In fact, I get +'s and comments each day! And now my profile/page is penalized for TWO WEEKS! Google won't even specify what the problem is so that I can adjust my behavior accordingly! What sense does that make?! Why does Google assume ill intent on behalf of those accused of spamming? Isn't promotion the point of having a business page in the first place? Google+ has an add feature to boot, so that the uninterested can simply ignore unwanted content! Is it their precious algorithms? 'Cause I'll tell you now, moderators of groups delete posts with minimal interaction at times simply to keep the feed clean. Maybe this is why the Google+ platform isn't used as much as they claim it is. I love the people on this platform for the most part. They interact and support each other all the time, but Google+ admins. are hamstringing my business efforts to a crippling degree, while neo-Nazis can post pics romanticizing Hitler and his boys daily! Unbelievable. All I'm asking is for information as to what I'm doing wrong so that I can adjust. I may be an idiot, but that doesn't mean I'm trying to take advantage. You know how it is when dealing with various social platforms... each has their own rules. So sometimes a feature or "rule" can be right in front of your face but you just don't see it.

Yeah, but it's spam if it's unwanted sharing. If you consider an artist's position, especially something like a webcomic, sharing one, unique page to several groups once, where people interact and appreciate the content, should be enough. Essentially we're being pressured into giving Google free content so they can add value to their platform.

Notifications knowledge  - 
 
I have a push notification problem regarding iOS. I have an iphone 4 (not the 4S), and when I go into settings -> notifications, I cannot confirm the selection since there's only a cross to go back in the menu (see the screenshot). So when I select something and then go back I cannot save anything.

(Obviously in the phone settings everything is turned on about push notifications)

Am I doing something wrong?

Google+ Photos shutting down August 1 to make way for Google Photos

"If you’ve been using Google Photos in lieu of Google Plus Photos, you’re probably not alone. Today, Google announced it will begin shutting down Google Plus Photos on August 1.

The shutdown will hit Android first, then iOS and the Web “soon thereafter.” Google also notes users have been seeing prompts in Plus to switch to the new Google Photos service, so many have likely migrated or are using both.

This isn’t much of a surprise, though. At a small event after Google I/O this year, Google’s Vice President of Products Bradley Horowitz said its social arm was going through a “renaissance in thinking of what Plus is and for.” For Horowitz, Plus should be about connecting people with similar interests together, not a catch-all social service.

Google says those still using Google Plus Photos should download the Google Photos app soon “for uninterrupted access to all your photos, videos and albums.” If you fail to switch ahead of August 1, Google says you can find your photos and videos at its photos portal, and they’ll be available for export using Google Takeout."

I noticed a while back (spring, maybe?) that "Public" started showing up as the default in the To line every time I post. I find this completely annoying, but I haven't found a way to change it. Is this some sort of "improvement" I'll have to live with?

G+ used to learn, based on the last post(s) before you signed out and used those the next time. They may have changed it because that confused too many people, to always default to Public now.
