Welcome to the Google+ Helper Community!

When asking for help:
Give as much details on your issue or suggestion as possible.

The more details you give us, the easier it is for us to provide you with a solution.
It may even help to give us a step-by-step detail of what occurred leading up to the error, or the feature you want to see implemented.

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


✔ If you sell your services to clients and wish to get help for your business actions, do hire a G+ professional.  
This is a volunteer community for helping users, not for solving your problems and doing your job for you!  

✔ Everyone: Please pay attention to the category you post in...  

✔ If you have a question about Google+, then please post it in the "QUESTIONS for the Community" category. If you wish to discuss something about Google+ with the members, the first category is for that "General G+ discussion".  

✔ All the other categories are for sharing helpful & informational posts! 

Thank you.

+Wario Hernandez Looks like you reached your hard limit of 5000 profiles that you are allowed to circle, including those ghost profiles where you added them, them removed them, but did not clear them from your GMail contacts.  If you look at GMail contacts, I bet you will find you have 5000 listed from G+.  You will have to do some uncircling and circle management if you want to circle more profiles.

Clear your app caches to clear up Android phone issues

"It can be easy to forget that your smartphone is just as much of a computer at the PC sitting on your desk. And like all computers, things sometimes go wrong. Files get corrupted. Apps that worked fine a week ago decide to crap out. 

If an app on your Android phone has suddenly stopped working correctly and relaunching the app didn’t help, clearing the app caches may get things working properly again..."

Is there a way in Google+ to set those whom I follow as default when opening my stream?  I want to avoid the "all" stream if at all possible.

Dear people if you can help I would be very grateful: I have three google + accounts linked to three youtube accounts. This is because, although I have not uploaded many videos I started two of these accounts a very long time ago, before google owned YouTube. Can someone please tell me how I can link all my YouTube videos to one google account so that I can delete everything else.

Important information!

Google does not call you and sell something...

Don't be taken in by fraudsters.
Thanks for the tip +Peggy K !

Local Business owners: Google will never make phone calls offering to improve your ranking or manage your business information

Watch out for parties calling and selling services claiming to have a special relationship with or claiming to be Google. Often, these parties are telemarketers that are not affiliated with Google and are trying to leverage the Google brand to sell your business some type of online service. Keep in the mind the following:

- Google does not place robocalls.
- Google does not call to "update your front page listing" or ask you to "claim your free website."
- Google does not charge for inclusion in Google Search or Google My Business.

People have been asking quite a few questions about how to get photos back to mobile phone from Google+...

Here are the instructions.
Gplus Expertise originally shared:
 
Restoring Auto-backup photos to your phone

In case you’ve deleted photos from your phone but want to restore them from your Google+ account back to the phone, you will need to use your desktop or laptop.

On your computer, hover over the Home button, and from the menu that appears, go to Photos. Click in the search bar and select Auto-backup. Select the first image by clicking on the checkmark on the top left of the image. You can then scroll down to the last image, hold down shift, and click the checkmark on that one to select all the photos in between. Once you’re in selection mode, with a blue bar above the photos, you can individually select and deselect other photos.

Once you have all the photos you want to restore selected, then click on More in the blue bar, and then choose Download.

Note that you can only download a maximum of 500 pictures at a time. When the photos have been downloaded, just transfer them to your Camera folder on your phone via USB.
Please consult your phone manufacturer’s help documentation to see how that’s done.

You can also use Google Takeout to get all of your photos: http://bit.ly/1GRAjrv, but this will download everything, not just the Auto-backup photos.

I started using G+ communities for my class projects. I have 20 per class. Is it possible to create a way to separate each class so I don't have to search through one big bunch of communities on the page? Like a Folder that contains all the communities for each of my classes...Thanks!

When verifiying google+ pages lately, and despite them having New Zealand as the location, the postcards seem to be travelling via Thailand and taking a really long time to arrive? Is there any particular reason why this is happening???

+Ahmed Maadan Pinned post for Communities rolled out maybe a year ago, and pinned post for Profiles and Pages did several months ago.  In all cases, only one is allowed, but maybe it would be nice to have an option to pin more than one post in some circumstances.  That is something you can easily Send Feedback about.  As for altering other people's posts - no way no how ever.  No point in requesting that.  As Owner, you can allow or remove a post, but you can't alter it.  You could ask the OP to alter it though.
