Under the terms of the partnership, Bing users signed into Facebook will be able to see search results instantly populated with information from their contacts on the social-networking service, including opinions and advice on restaurants, books and films.
In turn, Bing search results are to become available on Facebook users’ pages. Microsoft stressed that as a privacy consideration, Bing’s integration with Facebook will be optional for users. The integration should make Bing a more efficient means of helping users find specific information and people, while making decisions easier.
As for privacy implications of the tie-up, Bing users would not gain access to any information about Facebook users that has not already been made available to other contacts on the social-networking service.
