How has the connected pages data worked for you?
...we’re releasing the Connected Pages feature within Bing Webmaster Tools. Now, in addition to the current data you have access to on your own website(s), you can also claim official social pages, connect them to your account and see similar data as it relates to those connected locations.
Here is the complete list of web presences we currently support as connected pages:
· Facebook · Twitter · LinkedIn · Google+ · Windows Store · Google Play · Apple Store · Pinterest · Windows Phone Store · YouTube · Instagram · MySpace
Now, if you have an established presence at any of the locations listed above, you can begin connecting them inside your BWMT account effective today. Data will start to be populated within 72 hours. After that, it’s “always on” and you can select date ranges as within your normal site data areas to see information for customizable periods of time.

Does any of it have any chance of raising your rankings with Bing? I don't mean by virtue of seeing an error that I can correct or page code that I can tweak, I mean would connecting a high profile social account cause Bing to see my website in any different light that would actually move rankings? I know what's in it for bing, data gathering etc, but what's in it for me?
