Bing's update is bringing the collective IQ of the Web together with the opinions of the people you trust most, to bring the "Friend Effect" to search. Starting today, you can receive personalized search results based on the opinions of your friends by simply signing into Facebook. New features make it easier to see what your Facebook friends "like" across the Web, incorporate the collective know-how of the Web into your search results, and begin adding a more conversational aspect to your searches. Decisions can now be made with more than facts, now the opinions of your trusted friends and the collective wisdom of the Web.

Watch this video to know how Bing and Facebook can help you make better decisions:

LOL! Google +1 now is in trouble. Anything with Facebook will have an impact, since majority of the world has Facebook.

Microsoft GREAT idea product! Bing is definitely becoming more useful.

I think Microsoft is trying to hit Google where it hurts to prevent them from encroaching on their own territory. Microsoft never got serious about search until Google started walking in to their office and OS territory.
