Stalkers no need to get excited, privacy rules still apply.


Microsoft’s search engine Bing has just added a new feature. You can now search and browse your friend’s Facebook photos, search for specific keywords in photo captions or album titles, ‘like’ them and add comments to them right on Bing. The new functionality isn’t available directly from the Bing homepage and users must go to

This latest feature is an extension of the photo experience Bing introduced as part of its redesign earlier this year. And also deepens Bing’s social search integration with Facebook.

“With more than 300 million photos uploaded to Facebook per day, photo viewing is one of the most popular things people do on Facebook, Bing now lets you quickly find that special photo on Facebook with the new Friends’ Photo feature”, says the search engine in a post.

The Friends’ Photo feature only works if you are signed into Facebook and have granted Bing permission to connect. And according to Microsoft, Bing will respect your Facebook privacy settings and will only show images that you and your friends have made viewable. So, if you can’t see your ex-girlfriend’s yacht party pictures on Facebook, you won’t be able to see them on Bing.
