Recent update I’ve noticed in the UK today for the first time, when you type a name into Google while logged in you get similar results as you would get for brands in Google+
You can see Google is pulling a lot more information from Google+ personal profiles including the avatar, number of followers, bio, personal information such as email and address and the most recent Google+ post. At the moment this information only appears when logged into Google (I was a bit shocked when I saw my address and email address but only I can see that).
Perhaps linked to what possibly could be the recent rollout of Google plus your world in the UK – maybe an American reader could confirm this?
** Update – This has been in the US for a while now but only if you’re logged in to your Google+ account and for people whom you have circled. Thanks to Mark Traphagen for confirming.
