Bing and Facebook have joined hands to provide a more personalized touch to the search experience of the users. Based on the Likes of their Facebook friends, this would be a whole new experience for the users.

There would be a “Like By Your Friends”module to the search results. If you are also logged in your Facebook account while searching on Bing, depending upon your seacrh query, you may see the liking of your friends for the same.

This module will be seen at the bottom/top of the page. The rankings will purely be based on relevancy.
