With added Facebook features, Bing social sidebar now has even more to “Like”

A few months back the Bing team rolled out a slick new streamlined design for their social sidebar, and today they’ve made the feature even more useful, adding the ability to see and post Facebook comments right within Bing.

“Let’s say I’m searching for Beyoncé tickets because I know she is coming to town soon,” writes Nektarios Loannides, a program manager on the Bing team, in a post on the Bing Search Blog.

“I can see that my friend has recently posted that she has an extra ticket to the show. Now without leaving the Bing results page, I comment directly to her post letting her know that I’d love to join her for the concert. I’ve gone from simply browsing to attending a concert in just a few easy steps – all thanks to Bing.”

Learn more about what’s new in the sidebar over on the Bing Search Blog – and head to Bing’s event listings for Beyoncé to see when she’s coming to your town.
