When users sign into Facebook, those familiar 10 blue links are still there. But Bing’s new sidebar connects searchers to friends that may have specific insight into their queries. If those friends have “liked” a Thai restaurant in Noe Valley or they posted photos from a recent trip to New York, they’ll pop up in related searches in the sidebar under the heading “Friends Who Might Know.
Great idea kai and a great feature that I will start exploring when the new Bing search is available wordwide (US always first!). Bing has a lot of way ahead of it but Microsoft seems to do the right things..
