    There is no picture anymore, google removed it. Only By [author name]. Sometimes you also see the number of the followers.

    I've been reading reports on BHW and other forums about Google disabling author images in it's search results so everyone who uses Google authorship will have to do without their images being displayed in the results.

    I've never used Google authorship and don't think I'll ever use it.

    Yep, they gained various info which was probably what G+ was about anyway , google can't do social, they are to analytical and untrusted. Most people just joined thinking there was an seo benefit to using it. Now G+ will likely be thrown aside and another vain attempt will come out in the future no doubt. I've with seo power, I have never used it and never would have, they have enough data as it is.
