Microsoft Bing launches Facebook photo search tool

Microsoft’s Bing search engine today rolled out the latest in a series of Facebook-related features, launching a tool for quickly searching photos uploaded to the social network by your friends. It’s a simple but effective feature that might be Bing’s best Facebook integration yet.

The Friends’ Photos search feature requires logging into Facebook from Bing to be able to access data from the social network.

It can be accessed on this search page or by clicking on a friend’s photo in Bing’s “Social Sidebar,” the strip of related information from friends and experts in the right-hand column on Bing search results pages.

You can search by keyword, to find particular types of photos from all of your friends, or by a particular friend’s name.

Microsoft says the Friends’ Photos feature adheres to Facebook’s privacy guidelines and will only show photos that a particular friend has made viewable on Facebook to the searcher. The company says private photos won’t be shared with the public.
