Bing search gets social with Facebook

Starting from today Facebook and Bing are joining hands. Bing will show the searches according to your friend’s likes using the Instant Personalization by Facebook.

If you are searching for people, then the search will be based on the mutual friends you have. Imagine trying to search for a movie name just type the movie and press enter. You will see the movie results along with your friends who like that particular movie. For example you want to have a nice dinner at a good restaurant and you use Bing to search for it. You will get the recommendations according your friend’s likes.

You can also remove this personalization from selecting disable Instant personalization from your privacy section of your Facebook account.

This feature will be rolled out to people in US in the coming week. We wonder when this will be rolled out in India ? I am waiting for it eagerly, so that I can use it and tell you how it is. 😉

Is this new search going to take over Google in any way? Will Google lose its loyal Googlers. 🙂 Share your views through the comments below.
