Use Bing To Search Friends’ Facebook Photos

The Bing-Facebook integration continues to deepen. The Microsoft search engine announced Thursday that you can now use the site to search friends’ photos.

No, this doesn’t mean those embarrassing photos from spring break are open for the general public to see on Bing. When you visit the site, you can only search for your friends’ photos that have been made viewable. Bing explains that now users don’t have to mine through profiles or try to guess who uploaded a photo. It makes it easier to find just what users are looking for:

Looking for that epic shot from last winter’s ski trip?  Or the I-could-die-laughing photo of your roommate’s cat dancing? With more than 300 million photos uploaded to Facebook per day, photo viewing is one of the most popular things people do on Facebook. Bing now lets you quickly find that special photo (out of your friends’ thousands) on Facebook with the new Friends’ Photo feature. Now, with Bing, you can easily search and browse your friends’ photo collections–whether you’re looking for a specific moment, or just want to see what your friends have been up to at www.bing.com/friendsphotos.
