Search Sharing Features Being Tested in Bing

It’s no surprise in today’s social networking culture that sharing features are being more and more incorporated on various sites. Bing is the latest with its test of sharing buttons for Twitter, Facebook and Email.

Since it’s a test, most searchers will not see the sharing feature, which is why I have to share this screenshot featuring the Seattle Seahawks Instant Answer instead of the Carolina Panthers. This shot was featured on the Official Bing Blog and demos the sharing feature being tested:

Bing has labeled this feature as “Bing and Ping.” It’s not just for sports-related Instant Answers, either. They’re testing it on other searches such as flights and movie times.

What do you think of Bing and Ping? Let us know by leaving a comment.
