facebook & bing

Interacting with your friends on Facebook just got a lot easier — If you’re a Bing user, that is.

Bing will show comments from Facebook relevant to your search in the sidebar. From that search, you can Like a friend’s post, comment, or see the original post in its entirety on Facebook.

For instance, my search for “New Kids on the Block” brought up several posts from my friends who are fans, one who was excited to hear a NKOTB song on the radio, and another who was excited to be going to an NKOTB concert this summer. So, if I happened to be looking for a friend to go to the concert with, I could potentially contact one of them.

You can also add your own Facebook post directly from Bing. So, I could post a status asking if anyone would like to go to the concert with me, or express my own excitement about the event.

Friday’s new Facebook feature is an extension of the social sidebar Bing introduced last year. That feature brings in relevant social results from networks such as Foursquare, Twitter, Facebook, and Klout that are pertinent to your web search. Previously, you were not able to comment on or Like those posts.
