Want To Comment On Facebook? Now You Can, From Bing

A new Facebook/Bing integration today will further entrench Facebook data into Bing results. Users are now able to interact with Facebook directly within the Bing Search Results Pages, in more than the usual one-way, read-only context.

When a logged in user performs a Bing search for a  query the social sidebar will show on the right rail outside of the main search pane. The new functionality will allow users to like the post, comment on the post and hop right over to the post on Facebook. According to Bing, the new integration will be a more usable and helpful experience:

“Following the introduction of social sidebar last year, we’ve been exploring ways to make it even more useful … Now you can see what your friends might know about what you’re searching for and engage with them directly without leaving the search page.”

It appears that user tagging doesn’t work from the Search Results and other comments can’t be liked – only the post itself. For more information see the official Bing post.

    I applaud the technological innovations sprouting up from the Microsoft/Facebook relationship. That said In the past month I’ve had about a dozen interactions with Google via both phone & e-mail concerning three or four of their products. Every interaction was easy to initiate and resulted in either a solution or movement toward a solution. Conversely Bing takes 1 to 3 weeks to respond to an e-mail and it took more than six months to resolve a technical issue precluding our store from deploying to Bing shopping.

    Three weeks ago I had three phone conversations with someone by the name of Josh at Facebook. It took Josh three weeks to return my initial four phone calls but after engaging Josh who was in the advertising department at Facebook, I committed to him that I would commit to at the very least a $25,000 annual spend on Facebook ads in exchange for professional guidance from Facebook. It’s now been three weeks since my last conversation with Josh and he has failed to return any more calls so although I will continue to advertise on Facebook because it is effective, being old school it may take a while for them to understand no amount of modern technology will take the place of customer service and I’m going to spend what I want to spend -
