i have the same issue as nios and the other people in this group!! It pisses me off. I uninstalled the app from my android phone and this time when i installed the app again, i unchecked the instant upload option. However all my photos are there in the folder "photos from the phone". Even more, even after i turned instant upload off, every picture i take from there on also appears in this folder in google plus. It is so irritating to put it mildly. We complain about the privacy on facebook being below bar but this from google is even worse! It doesnt matter that the folder is private, you didn't ask my permission to upload them and there is no option to remove them!!! If this issue doesn't get sorted i will stick to facebook and give up on google plus! I never expected this from google very very disappointed!!!
