The continued integration between Bing and Facebook, which we originally covered a couple of weeks ago, has now gone live — at least for US users. Now, if you are logged into Facebook, your Bing search results will be 'socially tailored' — i.e. if a friend has liked a website, it will be at the top of your search results. Profiles will also appear if you search for names.
LiveSide is reporting that you can use an 'American' URL — http://www.bing.com/?mkt=en-us — to try it out, but it didn't seem to work for me. Try as I might, I couldn't get my friends' faces to pop up next to popular search results — so either it's not enabled for everyone, or I just don't have enough friends.
Incidentally, you can block Bing from interacting with your Facebook — though why I have to opt out, rather than opt in… I will never know.Bing's new Facebook-powered social search features go live
