Microsoft is launching a new social search page that displays results from Facebook & Twitter.
Bing will pull in social content generated on Twitter & Facebook to surface the most relevant updates within seconds of a breaking news event.
Here are some of the highlights that you will find on bing.com/social which will be live later soon:
- Status updates and shared links from Facebook fan pages: In addition to Tweets, we also search through Facebook fan page updates and surface matching results. For example, a search for “NBA Finals” will return fan-page content from Facebook, including posts from a local TV station.
- Aggregate shared link data for non-fan pages: For non-fan pages, we only surface popular shared links from Facebook users in the aggregate form, and only from users who have set their status updates to be shared with “everyone.”
- New homepage: A re-designed homepage that shows improved trending topics derived from both Twitter and Facebook data will also be introduced.
