    Yet another reason to go nowhere near bing.

    I am actually starting to feel I should avoid anything facebook related, we need to tell them that not all of us want to use it or ever will.

    Re: News - Bing integrates Facebook, should Google be afraid?

    If I search the internet for something such as 'how to change a fuse' I couldn't care less if one of my friends on facebook 'likes' fuses or any assoication of this such as they are an a electrician, or they 'liked' the fuse chocolate bar. (which I'm sure will be added soon if not already)

    IMO I want a meaningful search asap, that gives me what I want, which google does. I don't want to know who 'likes' it or have to scroll half way down the page to fine the relative link as the top x amount are all facebook related.

    I want facebook to stick at what they are good at, making you be friends with people you hate/hated/don't like, and MS to give you 'meaningful' searchers.


    Also does anyone know if you have Internet explorer, could you turn this 'feature' off?

    Re: News - Bing integrates Facebook, should Google be afraid?

    All the new features in the world won't help the fact that their searching "experience" is horrible in comparison to google and the branding is terrible (honestly, "bing"? Live search was better).

    I know they can't give it up as they /have/ to compete with Google..but this isn't the way to go about it.

    Still, that aside its a pretty cool (if useless) feature.

    I guess what they where hoping for is people to start saying 'bing it' in the same way people say 'google it'. You hcan hardly say 'live search it' its just not the same. Still i agree with you, the experience is pretty sub par on bing regardless of how much money has been thrown at it.
