Is it possible to disable Google+ notifications of newly Instant Upload photos in the big red square at the top right corner of the Google pages?

I would prefer for Google Plus not to notify me about newly uploaded pictures to the Instant Upload folder.

You can disable the notifications on your phone (at least on Android) but you cannot on the website. I found this Google Group post where a Google Community Manager actually replied with:

Hey Brian,

I can understand where you're coming from and will pass the feature request along!

I usually ignore the notifications and sometimes appreciate the reminder that a photo has uploaded when I may have forgotten about it. But I hear you :)

That was in 8/11. So far the update hasn't been made to say that it's a notification you can turn off. I also ran through settings on the browser and it's definitely not implemented yet.

I still get them on the top right corner when new images are uploaded. Looking forward to a way of disabling this in the future, when Google+ implements this feature. It would certainly be useful, in my opinion. –  127961409810234 May 26 '12 at 10:20
    
At least on the iPhone (and Android, based on what others are saying), turning off the notifications only turns off push notification popups about new photos. You still get the red bell on Google sites, or within the Google+ app. I hope they fix this. Until then I’ve decided to turn off photo auto backup. –  Nate Mar 25 at 16:18
