Never too late: Bing launches search-sharing over Facebook, Twitter; ignores own Windows Live!
It seems the giant is in the big front. Now Bing has introduced search-sharing for few social networking sites including FB and Twitter but we could not work out with their own Windows Live. What is Bing doing BTW?
Feature adding is just an innovation with MS development team for the entirely new search engine- Bing. They got to catch up social networking side this time. In July, they rolled out a feature that threw up Twitter updates from the accounts of famous celebrities if the tweet was relevant to your search result.
Now, the company has come out with a new feature called ‘Bing & Ping’ that lets you share your search results with friends via Facebook, Twitter, email or copy-pasting the same. Bing and Ping is a small toolbar-like popup that provides two-click access to all these services right from your search result page.
Bing’s Nicholas Kerr explains in a post on the official blog:
“We at the Bing team are firm believers in the idea that the only thing better than searching with Bing is sharing what you’ve found with your friends. That’s why we’ve been working on a potential new feature for Bing that does just that in a couple of clicks, which we call Bing & Ping.
“Let’s break this down with an example: say you use Bing’s Instant Answers feature to check the score of a game, and you notice that your buddy’s favorite team has just been beaten pretty handily. Say you want to ‘delicately’ remind him of their less-than-stellar moves with the ball. Bing & Ping lets you share this instant answer through various places, like Facebook, Twitter, or even email in as few as two clicks.
