Bug Description

In user testing participants don't see the Dash Launcher icon. The circle of friends icon lacks the ornamentation seen in the other default Launcher icons, and has no inherent meaning.

Also in user testing, participants were confused between the Nautilus and Dash Launcher naming.

----------------------------------------------
Desired solution:

- Update the design of the Dash icon, so that new users are attracted to it when they explore, and so that it successfully competes with the other icons in the launcher

- Contact Rosie for the visual design and assets which solve this issue.
