Microsoft Links Bing Results to Facebook

Quote:

This week, Microsoft announced an interesting tie-in between its Bing search engine and the popular Facebook social networking service. That is, Bing will now tailor its search results so that it accounts for the preferences of your Facebook friends. Microsoft calls this change a "social signal," but a simpler way to think of it, perhaps, is that Bing will now add a new personalized layer to its search results—one that's based on your actual relationships.

"We are rolling out some new features that allow you to take your friends with you into your Bing experience, both at bing.com as well as within the search experience at Facebook," Microsoft Senior Vice President Satya Nadel wrote in a blog postannouncing the functionality. "We will show you what your friends have liked, using Facebook's public 'like' platform, as you navigate through search results in Bing."

I have trouble imagining why I would care what my FB friends "liked" when I did a Bing search. When I do a search, I'm usually looking for info, I don't want it filtered by what my acquaintances "like".

This is not directed at any one person, or anyone really, just my feelings on the matter.

Because, facebook is stupid, really. I mean, who really needs to waste so much time on such absolutely irrelevant crap that infests sites like facebook.

Can people really not live without their friends (ahem, acquaintances) long enough, that they have to check in on their thoughts and tweets every time they turn around? Believe me, I know people like that.

I remember when there were only 3 channels and if nothing was on, you went outside to play.
Oh wait, kids have Androids and Iphones, they can tweet and faceschnook on the play ground. My bad.
