The reason behind the removal of the Knowledge Graph cards, according to Google, is to provide more consistency.  If you’re a fan of Google+ fan, don’t worry, as Google+ posts will continue to show up in the search results page, but just not in the Knowledge Graph.  It was confirmed that this change officially went live last week.
