google%2B.jpgI am an idiot, I was on a call and skimmed the announcement Google+ is now available with Google Apps.

I’ve been using Google + on my Google Apps account but while it was under the pre-migrated version, meaning, it was like a Google Private account, not a fully transitioned Google Apps account.

I’ve been waiting for Google to announce Google + for Google Apps users to finish the migration process. I thought that was today but it was not. Well, it is for some users, users who did migrate over but did not use Google + yet.

I skipped the last section which reads:

For those of you who’ve already started using Google+ with a personal Google Account and would prefer to use your Google Apps account, we’re building a migration tool to help you move over. With this tool, you won’t have to rebuild your circles, and people who’ve already added you to their circles will automatically be connected to your new profile. We expect this migration option to be ready in a few weeks, so if you’d like, you can go ahead and get started with your Apps account today and merge your connections once the tool is available.

So as of now, I asked for help explaining that I have a ghost profile which I need migrated to my new profile.

Ghost Profile:

New Profile:

The main issue is, I need the Ghost profile back and un-ghosted (if that is a word). It is what is used for my Google Authorship profile, it has all my circles, shares and so many +1s. I can’t start over – well I can, but all the data is gone.

Hoping one of my Google buddies can run the beta migration tool between the two profiles, so I have a solution or should I just start over?

Update: Found a loophole to get back in to the temporary account that I was using. So I can access it if I need it. Basically I login using and password.
