    I come from a land downunder
    I've just spent about an hour superimposing my ranking graphs on top of the facebook pages insights graphs. (weekly total reach)
    And I'm seeing some close matches.

    I'm seeing matches on all levels of keywords (from <100 to 1220000).

    Now this is the bit I hate to say - the facebook page is genuine, with about 90% of it's 20K fans not being fake, and the virality level of the posts seems like it needs to get over about 6%. I've been testing this for about 6 weeks now and getting most posts up to between 4 and 10% virality.

    I haven't got time for shit like this!

    Google seems to be snubbing FB anyway from what I notice. They are pushing G+ and even though Facebook SHOULD drive a buttload of backlink power it doesn't seem to really. Maybe in the future after G gives up on it's own social network.

    Your FB page is a horrific test of FB likes/etc effecting ranking.
    You fail to realize that reach is generated via people visiting your page, and rankings = more people on your site. Correlation =/= caustion
    You need to actually isolate FB.

    Try to rank a fresh site with FB shares/twitter retweets etc (hint, it won't work)

    G+ isn't going anywhere, I can assure you. There's far too much data to collect in the social sphere for G to consider withdrawing.

    I agree with colonnel tuxedo. G+ isn't going anywhere soon. Its better to work with facebook and twitter in my opinion.

    Twitter, yes. Facebook, I'm not too sure. Facebook has Bing powered search integrated in its search functionality, I don't think google will like that. They may leverage it for a while because it has the largest and a more active userbase compared to twitter and g+, but they will start edging it out sooner or later.
