Connect Facebook profile with Bing search


Bing search from Microsoft has become more social through Facebook. You can easily enable social search on Bing by connecting your Facebook profile with Bing Search. Social search will display more customized and relevant search results through your Facebook activity details. You can search for people and old friends on Bing and add them as Facebook friends directly. Bing search results will also display what your friends liked on Facebook, when matching content is being searched on Bing. For example: searching for movie will show if specific Facebook friends liked that movie (and have commected about it).
