    Mylife is getting a lot of mileage out of this infographic but I wonder how much of that is due to the inclusion of Google+. As a company that is built around social media writing off Google+ and it’s impact in search is a pretty bold move.

    Do they believe it or is it a brilliant marketing move to generate discussion around the infographic?
