    Default Wtf just happened

    OK so...

    I came out of the shower and checked my phone. I had my regular notifications, a text, an instagram comment, etc. Then I see one I've never seen before. A pinwheel. I guess it's google photos. Wut. I didn't upload a google photo.

    So I check on it, and it's an edit of the VR troopers photo I posted on my blog earlier. Except it has a filter on it and a boarder. I did not do this. So I freak out for a second like "WUT IS GOING ON HERE."

    I check on my google+ profile, and it is the only photo in the group called "photos from auto backup". The rest are pictures I've uploaded to my blog via their uploader. So I turned off auto-backup on my phone because I definitely don't want googling syncing all the photos I ever take...

    But the mystery remains...how the **** did this picture get edited and uploaded from my phone? Nobody else is here. I don't understand google plus and don't really want to be a part of it, but it forced me to do at one point or another to use some other google service.

    Kinda creepy.

    Really creepy actually...

    Your phone has the hipster filter + sharing virus. You most likely didn't have any instagram on your phone, so they went with google+ instead.

    Lol I do have instagram though.

    So bizarre. I have no idea how this picture got made lmao. It's the only one that got auto-backed up too. It's also the only one set privately.

    Nothing malicious at all, just this one, random edited photo that I had nothing to do with.

    I would personally bet my third testicle(his name is Petey) on it being caused by a physical manifestation of all the sadness and regret generated by photos that have gone unshared over the years.

    They're known a Instageists. They tend to share pictures setting in limbo on your mobile device sometimes even cleaning them up a bit first.
    Not really harmful just make sure you delete embarrassing photos before leaving your phone unattended.

    And be glad it wasn't a Snapchurel. They tend to make you mobile's camera go off whenever it happens to be pointing at your junk.

    This has happened to me once or twice. Can't really recall what caused it to be honest. I was kinda freaked out by it as well. Random pictures seemingly being copied with some kind of black border and filter.

    I've also had my phone create a sort of slideshow/gif of pictures I had taken within a certain time frame for some reason. Dunno what it was about.
