Bing adds Facebook photo search feature

 
 

SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - Bing added a feature on Thursday that lets people search through photos friends posted on Facebook.

"With more than 300 million photos uploaded to Facebook per day, photo viewing is one of the most popular things people do on Facebook," Bing social team senior program manager Ian Lin said in a blog post.

"Now, with Bing, you can easily search and browse your friends' photo collections." The Facebook photo search feature was available at bing.com/friendsphotos.

In May, Microsoft began weaving data from users' Facebook friends into Bing results as part of the biggest revamp of the search engine since its launch three years ago.
