I think all of us can safely say that it's there so people can share links ;)
Webmasters generally know how to share links already.
They also know that Google+ is one of the least effective ways of doing it.
Whereas the FaceBook button - with far greater reach - was removed.
I merely wish to understand the logic behind this ostensibly counter-productive difference.
I still find it baffling, despite your kind attempt to help.
