Facebook has announced that it will no longer provide results from Bing, when users will conduct search on the social network. The update is a part of a broader change that Facebook wants to bring in its approach to search. The change was reported by Reuters and confirmed by a Facebook spokesperson in an email to Search Engine Land saying:

"We're not currently showing web search results in Facebook Search because we're focused on helping people find what's been shared with them on Facebook. We continue to have a great partnership with Microsoft in lots of different areas".

For long time, Facebook search has been geared to help users find other people or information within the social network. Since 2008, Facebook has been serving search results from wider web.
