Why am I receiving Google+ messages from multiple numbers?
Every post you make, comment you add, and conversation you have are unique. In order to keep these unique Google+ activities updated properly, you may receive updates from different numbers. Make sure you’re sending your updates to the correct SMS message before hitting send.
For help, to turn off, or to turn on SMS notifications, text your command (highlighted here in bold) to your operator code.
