Today Bing made announcement about making live its new social-friendly search interface and any one can access it at www.bing.com/new. On the home page of bing you will see a message “The new Bing. The best search, now with people from your social networks” after clicking on “Check it out” button, you will be redirected to the new bing interface.
This new Bing integrates search and people in our social networks through a dedicated social “sidebar.” With sidebar, Bing brings together the best of the web, with what experts and your friends know, giving you the confidence to act. This new way to search lets you share, discover, and interact with friends like you do in real life. If you’re on the go, you’ll notice we’ve optimized the layout and placement of the social results on the mobile device for smaller screen sizes and for touch input, so the user experience will be different than what people see on a PC, Bing writes on its blog.
New Bing interface seems promising but do we really need of social integration while searching anything. I think most of us know how to search by yourself. How successful will be this redesigning of Bing, only time will tell so wait and search with new Bing to find out whether it satisfies your need or not.
