Bing: Bing News with Real Time Twitter feed and Facebook updates

Bing has been working hard over the past few months to keep its customers updated in real time with the information from their friends. As a part of the work, Bing is pleased to introduce two new ways to experience Twitter and Facebook on Bing.
Bing News adds real-time Twitter updates:
Bing Social has been introduced a while ago to experience the tweet stream to uncover the latest updates on the web. As an improvement, Bing has taken this further by integrating some of this real time social data into Bing news. Now, you can find the real time feed with the latest updates from Twitter highlighting hot news topics alongside the latest headlines on Bing news. Therefore, you can search for a news item and immediately see what are the tweets on the topic.

As we’ve seen with the tragedy in Japan or political turmoil in the Middle East, real people are relaying timely and compelling items not captured by traditional outlets. Bing news now lets you compare and assess authoritative news analysis alongside real-time citizen journalists so you can decide which content sources you want to use.

Share and discover movies, TV shows, actors, bands and artists with Facebook via Bing Entertainment:
Bing has recently expanded the “Liked Results”. If you’re signed into Bing and Facebook, it will highlight the links that are publicly liked or shared via Facebook in the search results. This week we released a new way to share movies, artists, musicians and television shows directly to your Facebook profile from Bing.

Besides, Bing entertainment pages let you click on the “Overview” tab and post “What’s on your mind”. Whether it is a movie, a video game or even an artist, you can share your thoughts with a single click. For example, my pal Ted here has done a search for “Rango”, clicked on the overview tab, shared his thoughts on the movie and published directly to his Facebook profile page. Because I know Ted has quirky tastes and a penchant for Hunter S. Thompson novels, this begs a comment and more discussion on Facebook.
