With every search that people do, Bing believes there is a person out there who can help you make a decision. This is why Bing lets you tap into the wisdom of friends and experts in the social sidebar. Starting today, you will see an average of five times more Facebook content in the sidebar, including status updates, shared links, comments and photos from your friends. Bing is the only search engine where you can find relevant search results along with the people who can help you make a decision – so you can spend more time doing and less time searching.

Say you're thinking about making your first trip to Coachella and decide to research it online. When using Bing, you will find not only great search results about the festival, such as when it is and how to get there, but also pictures, posts, comments and more from your friends who attended the festival in the past. Now you know all there is to know about Coachella and which of your friends might have the inside scoop or, better yet, want to join you. Bing doesn't stop there. It will also show you advice from experts across Twitter, Foursquare, Quora, Klout, Google+ and more to help you make the most of your trip.

Want to try it out? Getting a little help from your friends is only a step away. Visit Bing, click on Connect to Facebook, and you're good to go! As you would expect, Bing lets you control what you share and respects your Facebook privacy settings.

What are you waiting for? Stop searching alone, and let Bing put your social network to work. Sign in to Facebook at http://www.Bing.com to experience the benefits of social search.
