Google - always wanting to be more transparent in the search engine results it dishes out, seems to have become curiously less transparent with this development that few seem to have noticed.
Personal icons or Google Plus pics of authors or users no longer appear in results. (Only exception seems to be if you have an Android device and Google play still displays your icon. This feature has just been removed by Google in "Google Search Plus Your World" feature. Was Hub Pages right to not use Google plus? Was the icon and more personalized results fad just a fad after all?
