I would like to add that the Young internet generation grows up with Facebook. Goole as a synonym for internet is the old generation, new internet synonym is Facebook. Look at brands that have their site hosted on Facebook!
Unfortunately Amazon did it right for ecommerce as number one spot, although they are far away to be the best. But they handled it with massive ads to get it into users brain.
Google now sits between this two. Google+? No way. And instead showing poeple alternatives to the realy big ones, they put them in a long row from page #1 to #10. For sure poeple will go direct to the big ones without Google. It is a learning process and Google has launched it!
