Bing Gives ‘Friends’ Photos’ Facebook Feature A Makeover
Bing announced that it has made some adjustments to the Friends’ Photos social search feature it launched last year. Updates include a new look and interface and a new “slideshow mode”.
“You may be familiar with the modern user interface design principles that serve as the foundation for Windows 8, Windows Phone and Xbox Live,” says Bing Social program manager MK Li. “We’ve introducing a new tile layout that marries design and performance, making it faster and more seamless to browse your friends’ photos.”
Here’s what that looks like:
“Now simply by clicking on a photo, you will enter slide show mode where you can see more photos from your Facebook friends that match your search. From there, you can also search for additional photos, or simply browse,” says Li.
Of course Facebook has its own new way of browsing your friends’ photos, with Graph Search, which is still slowly rolling out to users.
