As Bing continues to expand its collection of people, places and things so you can quickly find what you’re looking for, it’s got a new feature called Timeline that gives you at-a-glance milestones of famous individuals.
One name that might be buzzing since Thursday’s ladies figure skating final at the Winter Games is Ashley Wagner. When you search for her name on Bing, you’ll see a chronology of her career path to Sochi under Timeline.
Displayed are the important events in the timeline of influential folks. If you look up Henry Ford, you’ll see his marriage, early career and pivotal moments in his life at Ford Motor Company.
The Bing Search Blog reports that Bing has generated timelines for about half a million people and is constantly adding to the list. Timeline details vary by individuals and what they’re known for — Wagner for her skating, Ford for his achievements in motor history, for instance. Or for many actors and singers, their movies and songs, rather than the events of their lives.
To find out more about Timeline, head over to the Bing Search Blog.
