Microsoft Bing Adds New Pinterest Social Media Features
Bing may not be the most popular search engine on the Internet, but Microsoft has big plans for it in the future. Aside from incorporating the engine into all its products, Microsoft sees social media integration as an important step, too. Now, Bing users can easily share whatever image they find through Bing on Pinterest.
When searching through images, Bing will now have a Pinterest "Pinit" button on the information bar of each image, making it even easier for users to post the pictures to their page.
This makes Pinterest the latest social network to be incorporated into Bing's engine, alongside Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and more.
It's not exactly the most revolutionary feature, but it could perhaps mean that Microsoft and Pinterest will take integration even further in the future.
"We're excited to introduce the 'Pin to Pinterest' feature on Bing image search. Now, you can pin image results directly from Bing to your favorite Pinterest boards," Chen Fang, program manager at Bing, wrote in a blog post. "Whether you're gathering inspiration for a home decorating project, a Memorial Day BBQ, or a summer vacation, it's never been easier to find more pictures and keep track of the ones you love most. See something that catches your eye? Just one click and it's saved to your Pinterest board."
Here's some more information concerning what exactly users can do with Bing's new Pinterest feature.
- Simple and Lightweight: There's no need to install another bookmarklet in your browser, one click and you're good to go.
- Link to Original Content: Bing automatically links and gives proper attribution to the original, high-resolution source, saving you the hassle of tracking it down yourself.
- Powerful Search Tools: Take advantage of the full breadth of Bing image search tools like sorting and filtering by size, color, layout, and more. You can even do image search within a specific website, for example, see all "summer dresses" on Anthropologie.com.
