    Mystery of the changing Google+ Local page profile pic images

    More fun with Google+ Local Pages in the UK - Remember, these are still operated through the old Places dashboard and we have no control over what image Google chooses to show in that circle.

    This evening, Google seems to be giving everyone a slideshow at Lollipop Local. These screenshots were all taken within five minutes of each other.

    And, yes, I did check the URL to make sure I was seeing the same page. The middle one which does not have the share option has some additional code about GB added to the URL https://plus.google.com/102094324688...gl=GB&hl=en-GB

    Clicking on that link, I get the lollipop lady image this time...

    All most peculiar.

    Wow Jo, that's really trippy

    Your main photo has changed twice on me.

    Looks like you found a cool glitch.

    Wow, that's crazy! Have just gone to your page and the profile image switches every time I refresh the page. Looks like it's alternating between the bottom two that you attached above.

    LOL, I did wonder if I should use the blue button and call Google but thought it was probably best to save that option until I have something really serious

    I'm consistently only seeing the bottom image. Even with a HARD refresh.

    Are you in Chrome, Linda?

    In Firefox, I get just the middle image... :O
