aakk9999, actually I think that may be what Google intends, unfortunately. I think they want the SE to be more like social media, and think big grinning faces are the way to go. I personally think they are mistaken - not just because I'd prefer they do things differently, but because search just can't be social media, and shouldn't try to be. It's one thing for Google+ to work like Facebook, but something else for Google Search to incorporate too much of it.
