Webmaster tools - +1 Metrics - Search impact

The new +1 vote of "popularity" or "success" or "approval" is taking a little while to catch on in my opinion. I have had the button on my homepage for a while now and from my research eveyone wonders what it is and hardly anyone has used it.

Nonetheless Google is giving us an impressive suite of tools to encourage us to get on board. This tool tells us how much a page has improved in the Google rankings after it has been popularised by a few zillion +1 clicks...definitely none of my pages will be registering for this metric I feel.
