It is not about Google or Facebook supporting IPv6, it is about YOU supporting IPv6. When the pool runs out completely around September, new potential visitors will only be equipped with IPv6 addresses. If your website isn't ready by that time, you are missing a whole new generation of Internet users. They will be satisfied by the sites who's webmasters didn't laugh here in this thread, but instead did their work to support IPv6.
Is your logging software supporting IPv6? probably not
Is your firewall supporting IPv6? probably not
Are your SQL database IP address fields supporting IPv6? probably not
Are your server side scripts supporting IPv6? probably not
Is your front-end reverse proxy supporting IPv6? probably not
Is your email software supprting IPv6? probably not
Vint Cerf was very clear about it, the current Internet architecture was just meant to be an experiment.
The real Internet will start in September 2011, and you'd better take action to become part of it.
