Bing Now Includes Facebook “Liked Results”

February 25th, 2011 at 9:57 am

While Google has its Twitter-integrated search results, Microsoft partners up with another hugely-popular social networking site for a more social-based Internet search. Users can now see Facebook “Liked Results” on Microsoft’s search engine Bing.

“As people spend more time online and integrate their offline and online worlds, they will want their friends’ social activity and their social data to help them in making better decisions,” Microsoft reps stated in Bing’s official blog. “Integrating with Twitter data 16 months ago was one step, and exploring Facebook’s rich streams is another.”

Only links posted on Facebook that are publicly liked will appear on the search engine. Also, Bing claimed that not all Like Results will show up in the search.

However, questions on whether unsolicited likes by a user’s Facebook friend would be included in the list continue to linger.
