In-Depth Bing Relaunch Overview
If like me you are not yet seeing all the new Bing features (or if you are outside the U.S. where they have not yet been introduced), Danny provides an excellent and in-depth overview with his Bing Relaunches, Features New Social Sidebar posted yesterday. It seems that to see most of these new features requires
- being in the U.S.
- having Facebook and/or Twitter accounts
- being logged into Bing using Facebook Connect and your account
According to Bing's announcement, "In the coming days we will be releasing this to users in the United States. If you would like to be one of the first people to experience the new Bing, visit www.bing.com/new, to receive an email notification when it's available."
The social sidebar, in particular, seems to provide some possible ways for librarians and information professionals to be available to their users during a Bing search, if you can get your users to use Bing and connect to you via Facebook.
