Who knows how this will transpire, but Google is search, not social. People don't need to hang together over a search result - that's not what daily conversation is about.
These forays into foreign territories never seem to sustain , even though they cause panic and are necessary to Google to commercially test themselves.
So i agree with the above comments about core, and side with Netmeg about getting on with life whilst being aware.
