How Mark Zuckerberg inspired a more social Bing | Microsoft – CNET News

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..

Posterous Joins the Flock at Twitter

The acquisition brings Posterous’ engineers, product managers and other employees into the flock with plans for them to work “on several key initiatives that will make Twitter even better.”

Posterous Spaces will remain up and running without disruption, and the company promises to “give users ample notice” if any changes are on the horizon.

BIG DEAL! “Do you think this will be twitter’s answer to longer tweets?” (like tumblr does) a commenter of the article asks, so do am I. Will there gonna be any big changes? Will they gonna be good for their users?? We’ll have to wait and see and I, myself, am quite eager to learn more about this acquisition because this site you are reading is a Posterous site… 😀
