G really wants to hold its own social data and not use providers that they have to wearily assign "Trust" to at the moment.
i think they've got a good idea as to which sites to assign trust. many of the blossoming social media platforms drive thousands of visitors to sites on a daily basis, and based on all the recent patents, the g algo is aggressively moving more towards ranking sites based on the amount of traffic that is being driven to them.
