Bing Extends Facebook 'Liked Results' [bing.com]
A few months ago, we announced an exciting partnership with Facebook to make search more social. As part of that work, we introduced Liked Results, which promotes links your friends have publicly liked or shared via Facebook. Today we are extending Liked Results to annotate any of the URLs returned by our algorithmic search results to all users in the US.

If your friends have publicly liked or shared any of the algorithmic search results shown on Bing, we will now surface them right below the result.

Good for Bing, but good for results?

Interesting idea. Seems like something people would like to see in their search results leading them to prefer Bing over Facebook. If it can catch on.

But lol @ the comments on the blog.

If I want facebook results I don't go looking at Bing for them.
If I want Bing results I'm probably not going to want to see Facebook.
But that's just me.

You can get tons of users to like you by handing out free goodies or even a chance to win XYZ. Will that be good for the results?
