Bing Moving Forward With Facebook Photo Search
Bing has announced new improvements to its Facebook photos search function. The company is improving its user interface and adding support for a slideshow view.
Users who connect their Facebook accounts through Bing’s search service can use the Friends’ Photos feature to find their own photos and photos from their Facebook friends pages.
Bing launched its new Facebook photos search feature in August, adding to Bing’s Social Sidebar feature. The feature is integrated alongside Bing’s standard webpage search results.
Today’s improvements, much like Bing’s original setup, only feature photo returns when a user is friends with a Facebook.
Photos are also restricted if a user has set privacy restrictions against the searching party.
Essentially the Bing search feature for Facebook photos allows users to circumvent the Facebook platform while providing deeper search integration for its own search product.
