Bing Gets Adaptive (Personalized) Search

Thursday, September 15th, 2011

I didn’t realize that Bing was still around … that’s a good thing though; the more search options, the better.

Bing and Facebook Merge Search and Social

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

Hmmm. It sounds like Bing just became my least favorite search engine …

Mashups. Everyone seems to think that people love mashups. Not really sure where this came from but we have to live with the consequences. Facebook and the Bing search engine yesterday announced a new mashup, that merges Bing search results with Facebook social information.

The feature which is going to be rolled out in the United States in the coming weeks will show friends’ recommendations on Bing. If you search for top movies you see which friends liked the movies shown in the results.
