Twitter Renews Social Search Deal With Bing

Written on September 07, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Twitter has extended its contract with Bing, allowing the social site to continue hosting its real-time "firehose" in search results.

Last Summer, Google has ended its partnership with Twitter and decided to roll out its own G+ network. This matter did not seem to bother the social site, since they also had another real-time deal with Bing for the same services.

In a recently publicized Twitter chat, the two networks announced their plans of extending their real-time search partnership. Both accounts recalled the past two years that they have been working together as partners to include all Twitter’s tweets into Bing’s search engine, and have agreed to “stick together and do bigger and better things.”

After the jump, you can see the summarized version of the companies’ comic Twitter chat, as disclosed by Twitter spokesperson Carolyn Penner — the person who noted in an email that the “partnership has been extended.”

Microsoft’s Bing Partners with RIM

Written on May 04, 2011 by R. Depp

Comments Off

Looks like RIM is ditching Google for Microsoft’s Bing.

Microsoft CEO, Steve Ballmer, confirmed during the Research In Motion’s (RIM) Blackberry World conference in Florida that RIM has partnered with the computier giant. Since yesterday, Microsoft’s Bing will be the default search and map application for BlackBerry smartphones.

Bing’s search and mapping technology will include location-based services. Furthermore, the Bing-Blackberry partnership will also include voice search and Street View-esque maps, all to be integrated at an OS level.

According to Mashable, the continuing impact of a Microsoft/RIM deal for search might be minimal, but this partnership may also lead to more collaboration points between the two companies in the future.

Bing Search Results Adds Facebook Likes

Written on February 26, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Very similar to Google’s social search upgrade last week, Bing has further integrated Facebook likes into search results. But instead of showing the Facebook likes at the bottom, it appears on top of the page.

Just like what Google did with their search engine upgrade last week, Microsoft’s Bing also integrated Facebook likes on their search results. But instead of appearing at the bottom of the page, the Facebook likes appear on top of the search results. And this is the giant hole that Bing has decided to go and flaunt.

Though Google can also sport data from Twitter, Flickr, Blogger and other “lesser” social media networks, Bing was able to put Facebook data on its rightful place. This also goes with Faceboook’s deepening search results by adding categories.

It looks like Microsoft and Facebook are really working together to give the search engine giant a run for its search money, isn’t it?
