Don't be evil - focus on the user

How much better would social search be if Google surfaced results from all across the web? The results speak for themselves. We created a tool that uses Google’s own relevance measure—the ranking of their organic search results—to determine what social content should appear in the areas where Google+ results are currently hardcoded.

A pretty damning case of Google losing sight of their core business. Google+ is actually making search worse, as evidenced by this bookmarklet that un-does the “socializing”.
