Either for the purpose of some serious research or for other casual reasons, the next time web surfers decide to search for known and unfamiliar people on the internet, Bing Linked pages would be there to make it easier. The recently introduced Bing service lets users link their names to relevant pages, so that they are easily accessible whenever friends and others try to scour the web for them.
Through this feature, users will be able to decide the kind of results that are displayed when they are being searched for. In addition to this, social butterflies can also determine the way they will appear to select search aficionados they know about. To design their Bing search results, users can access the Linked pages beta website of the search engine. While logging in, they will require to use their Facebook credentials for the same.
“With people search being such a high volume pastime, we’re taking it a step further letting you have more control in how you show up on Bing. Beginning today, with Linked Pages, we’re letting you link websites related to you in search results. Now your friends looking for you online can find what you want them to find. You can also link pages to your friends to help them shine on Bing as well,” said Ian Lin of Bing Social Search on the official search blog for Bing Community.
In addition to this, the system is designed for users to have full control over what they are linked to. An ‘Unlink me’ button below each link allows them to dissociate themselves from any link they find improper. Apart from themselves, individuals can also link friends to increase their visibility with associated people.
The Bing Linked pages are currently available only in the U.S.
