If it doesn't fit with their other simple buttons, then it was to make it stand out.
Their favorite button used to be a red heart. It's been changed to a thumbs up sign to "like", could really be a secret handshake though.
Although I see your point about using an eye, it just doesn't resemble the eye of Horus one bit to me, to tie it in.
The search button being an eye is really a stretch.
From a design standpoint it isn't that great, and doesn't photoshop have eyes like this in their character sets in the wingdings fonts, or in the
shapes tool? It is in my PS. So it wouldn't be that much extra work.
