If you are using a 3rd party application or WordPress plugin to automatically post or share your content and Google Plus, and the post is appearing as Private in Google+, here’s the guide to change the private share to public.
Changing a Google+ Private Post to Public via Settings
Login Google Plus and switch to the account (Profile or Page) that needs to get fixed.
From your Google+ dashboard, on the left-hand side navigation bar, click on Settings.
Inside Settings, look under General and click on the link MANAGE, and it will bring you to a long list of general settings that you can customize for your Google+.
Next scroll to somewhere in the middle of the page, and you will see the header “Manage other apps & activity”. Click on the button Manage apps & +1’s on posts.
On the next page, choose the tab Apps, and Google+ will show you the WordPress App(s) that it’s connected with. Just click on the link Edit, choose Public, then hit the SAVE button.
Changing a Private Share to a Public Share on Google Plus
Another method to quick-fix is by re-sharing your Google+ post to the Public. However, this is not a permanent solution, so the first better is recommended to make the settings right for your WordPress plugin/app.
Look for that particular post that needs to be reshare, then click on the share icon.
Choose share on Google+, then choose Public.
It’s actually not difficult to make the necessary changes. The issue cropped up probably because Google+ didn’t really make it obvious and user friendly enough for their users to find out intuitively.
