Earlier, we looked at, Microsoft's new(ish) social network, which seems to be something of a testing ground for interactions between search and social media.

While some of may look familiar to Bing users (or those who have read about the recent Bing redesign), and some of the features may one day make their way to Bing, currently has no impact on Bing's current social features.

Duane Forrester answered a user question on Twitter:

@DuaneForrester will this thing impact the social graph of Bing search at all?

@mwilton13 is not included at this time. We focus on Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, Quora, LinkedIn & Google+ currently.

It is nice to see where Bing's social efforts are focused.

It's just been a Duane Forrester kind of day. We also looked at some advice he gave regarding Google's Penguin and Panda updates in a different article, as well as his suggestion that you should be using Pinterest.

On that note, its interesting that Pinterest isn't mentioned on Forrester's list of Bing's social focal points. Perhaps he was hinting at the future. A Pinterest-based image search integration could be cool.
