Bing News Gets New Look, Trending Topics From Facebook, Twitter
Microsoft continues its Bing redesign spree with a new look for Bing News. Here’s the before and after.
The design adapts to fit your browser width, so it looks good regardless of what device you’re using.
It also now surfaces trending topics from Facebook, Twitter and Bing itself. The BIng News team writes in a blog post:
Cut through the clutter from across the Web with Bing’s real-time view of the most relevant breaking trends and social conversations, available all in one place. At the top of the Bing News page, you can easily browse the latest headlines with the news carousel showcasing the latest trending topics in categories including US, world, local, entertainment, sports, politics, and more. If you search for a celebrity or politician who is making headlines, the recent news topics about that person will also be showcased in the carousel. On the right side of the page, you will see what news is trending on Facebook and Twitter based on popular “likes” and “tweets.”
Bing’s “Satori” technology (basically Bing’s version of Knowledge Graph) also surfaces people who are related to trending news in a ‘Trending Now” section.
