News: Google gives +1 Buttons for its Image Search Results

Nowadays, everyone should be aware of the Google+1 button. Now, if you hover the cursor on the Google image search result, you can view the +1 button that shows you the recommended image to be followed in Google+.
Most of the times, Google removed the social features from the image search engine. Now, it relies on the +1 button to provide social recommendations. Besides, the social layer is no longer a separate section as it is less comprehensive. The previous version comprised "pictures that your friends and other contacts have published publicly to the web on photo-sharing sites like Picasa Web Albums and Flickr".

The "results from your social circle" were probably less relevant since Google generated the social circles from your Gmail contacts, Google Talk buddies, the people you follow in Google Buzz and Twitter.
