Google announced they are now incorporating Google + posts and information directly in the search results.

Here is a picture:

Google + Results

Now, prior Google did show these types of information with Twitter results and even based on your Google Profile public links profile. Now, Google will show all the public posts that you or your friends made in the search results.

Google said:

Remember, to experience this updated feature, you’ll need to be on Google+ and also make sure that you’re logged into your Google Account when you search. In addition, only public posts on Google+ are visible in search results. Private posts on Google+ aren't.

Had to see this coming  As the Google + user base continues to rise, this will become an important factor in marketing to you consumers.  Recommendations from friends and family have much higher conversion rates than a simple search.

Can you opt out? It will make the SERPs look really messy, and it will discourage me from following random people on Google+.

This seems awfully dangerous and all of a sudden someone's "private" post goes public.

Does anyone know the date when the +1 option was removed from AdWords & Search results
