Bing has officially gone social. If you make a search in Bing, and one of your Facebook friends has “liked” one of the pages that returns in your search results, you will see their “like” highlighted on the results page.
Instant social authority feedback. And they’ve beaten Google to the punch with the greatest authority in social media, Facebook. Other incorporations include seeing which movies your friend’s have liked on IMDB. FanSnap sports ticket information directly within the search experience. And more.
Plus, Bing is also playing detective and trying to guess what you’re looking for with their “instant answer” information, similar to what Google already offers. So, the big question is, will this help Bing increase its market share? We’ll see. But this search engine social integration en masse is a very good sign of things to come.
