Satya Nadella: The technology search engines employ to retrieve that needle in the information haystack is staggering and humbling; it’s one of the things that get us fired up to come to work at Bing every day.
Today we announced an exciting expansion to our long-term partnership with Facebook. Specifically, we are rolling out some new features that allow you to take your friends with you into your Bing experience, both at www.bing.com as well as within the search experience at www.facebook.com.
