Daily Update, Jan. 17th – Bing Expands Social Search & Lady Gaga Chats With Fans on Skype

One of the advantages of searching with Bing is the ability to tap into the wisdom of friends and experts in the social sidebar, and starting today you will see an average of five times more Facebook content in the sidebar, including status updates, shared links, comments and photos from your friends. Bing is the only search engine where you can find relevant search results along with the people who can help you make a decision — so you can spend more time doing and less time searching.
