Bing Shopping goes social

Ever felt the need to ask your friend online for their opinion on something you intend to buy? Like for example your next Smartphone? Bing Shopping just made that easy to do! The team put in something you may already know for certain results like news and entertainment: share links for Facebook, Twitter and Email.

Let’s follow the example in the team’s blog post to see how this works:

– First we go to Bing Shopping 
– Type HTC HD2 in the search box and hit <enter> (gently!)

Sure enough there it is in the results, the HTC HD2 Smartphone. Hmm where are the social links you say? Not so fast, we’re not there yet!
– Let’s click on the link shall we?

Ah, there they are!
– Now we can ask for our friends opinion by clicking any of the links.

Handy for sure! Now Bing Shopping is social too.
