Bing Pushes Ahead With Search of Facebook Photos

bing, social media, social networks, facebook, photos, photo-sharingBing is continuing to improve on its specialized search engine for Facebook photos, gussying up the feature’s user interface and supporting a slideshow view.

Users who connect their Facebook accounts to Bing can use the Friends’ Photos feature in lieu of fumbling through Facebook to find a particular set of photos.

The feature, which launched in August, builds on Bing’s Social Sidebar, a sidebar of social content that the search engine offers in addition to standard webpage search results.

Today’s improvements, while relatively minor, show that Microsoft has not abandoned the feature since Facebook unveiled Graph Search.

Friends’ Photos only returns results that the user could also see on Facebook, in accordance with the privacy settings of the user who posted the photos.
