Bing and Facebook announce new partnership: “Liked By Your Friends”

Microsoft Corporate Vice President Yusuf Mehdi, Online Services President Qi Lu, and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg today announced a new partnership, and brings “Liked By Your Facebook Friends” search results to Bing.  The new module will bring information from your friends’ Facebook Likes into the Bing results page.  You’ll begin to see these results on Bing later today, according to Mehdi.

Bing will also later today bring searching for people from Facebook into Bing Search.  Bing will also pop up a notice on the Facebook integration, with easy access to opt-out if you’re not interested in integrating Bing with Facebook.
