Bing recently announced that their new interface is now accessible to all users. Bing says that the new way of searching is “designed to help you interact with friends and take action without compromising the core search experience.”
One of the new features that Bing has added is a social “sidebar” that allows you to get a better sense of what your friends and the web know, which should make your decision-making process a little easier.
Bing will take information from your Facebook friends and their “likes” and the information they’ve shared in order to make recommendations for you. Two features of Facebook that Bing won’t use are status updates or check-ins.
“Snapshots” is a new feature that hasn’t launched yet. It will provide you with additional information about each listing.
The new Bing search is meant to tie search and social together. It has similarities to Google’s Search Plus Your World but pulls information from Facebook instead of Google+. It will be interesting to see if users prefer this over traditional search.
