Bing gets even more social, allows you to search through your friends’ Facebook photos

Microsoft (MSFT) on Thursday announced a new update to its Bing search engine that will bring deeper Facebook (FB) integration to the service. The company’s new “Friends’ Photos” feature allows users to quickly search through and locate photos belonging to their Facebook friends. “On Bing, your Facebook privacy settings are always respected,” said Ian Lin, a senior program manager for Bing. “Your Facebook friends will only be able to see the photos you have made viewable, and you will only see photos your friends have made viewable, and your photos will never be shared with the public.” This isn’t Microsoft’s first attempt at socializing its search product. The company invested in Facebook and it currently provides results on Bing based on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and other social networks.
