Under some of the results it says "Actively discussed on Google+ - Show". When you click on Show a section drops down and shows the discussion of that page on Google+

But there are a lot of lurkers. ;)
Interesting also is Google's choice of thumbnail images. As it's apparently a hot trending topic, they're returning news results in the top position, and the image used for the news grouping is from a different site than is the story featured.
Truth and the plex have been strangers, for quite some time now..
Their serps ..they can put what they like in them ( as long as they own the content ..that they put, mostly they don't )..but as to why they put things..I'd prefer that they admit that Larry doesn't want to eat crow pie..because without the new droid sign ups being forced into it, G+ sign up numbers are near stagnant..than they lie about what is "hot"..and the meaning of "hot".
