All the major search engines are now working on integrating signals from your own personal network on sites like Facebook and Twitter to enhance their search results. Google launched its latest initiative last week and today Bing is launching the next step in its program to bring more “liked results” to its results pages. Whenever one of you friends has liked a page that appears in your search results on Microsoft's search engine, this fact is now highlighted on Bing and your friends' profile pictures will appear underneath the link.
Today Microsoft launched two major new feature for Bing, its increasingly popular search engine. Bing can now show local search results based on your current location and personalize results based on your previous searches and clicks.
Somehow I completely missed the fact that those new blue "shared by" links on Google News results that appeared on my main search results pages a few days were new. Given the pace of the search giant's development cycle, I have to admit that I'm sometimes actually rather confused about what's new and what's been around for a while on Google.
Android users already know about this, but with the latest update to the Google Search app for iOS, Apple users now also get to enjoy this feature.
When Google realizes that you have an upcoming trip on your schedule, it will show you info about your destination, including weather and some tourist info.
