Not the most appealing thought for me either Alcoholico, but strictly from a marketing standpoint adding facebook updates (or something...anything unique) into serps would add some value and raise awareness of Bing existence--which Bing desperately needs.
As it stands, Bing offers no point of differentiation at all relative to Google's serps, which means little chance for organic growth.
There's really no compelling reason to make a switch.
