Microsoft unveils Bing Boards, a visual collections of images, videos and links
Microsoft has launched a new experimental feature for Bing.com called Bing Boards. This new feature is a visual collection of images, videos, and links that are view-able in the middle column of Bing during search results.
“What is a Bing Board? Bing Boards are visual collections of images, videos and links that tell a story from a unique point of view. They are created by people who are passionate about the topics they blog, write or talk about – not companies or algorithms. Bing Boards are designed to be complementary to web search results, appearing in the middle column of Bing, and are aimed to help people to discover new, visually rich content,” Microsoft stated in an official blog post.
Microsoft wants this new experimental feature to be helpful, engaging, and informative for those who search on Bing.com. Currently, Microsoft is working with a select group of food and lifestyle bloggers for this experiment and plans on expanding to other topics as well. To try out the new experiment, head over to Bing.com and search for “photo booth backdrop” to see Bing Boards in action.Further reading: Bing, Microsoft
