bing-logo-200Bing has announced that searchers on the iPad will start seeing its “social sidebar” over the next few days. That includes the iPad Mini.

Today’s announcement comes just days after Bing finalized a new design for those social results.

The social sidebar integrates friend and expert content from a variety of social sources that might be relevant to a user’s search term. Bing says the display will adjust appropriately for either portrait or landscape mode.
