    The News About Bing News

    Search data indicates that people expect search engines to stay up-to-date on news: 60% of our customers use a search engine to get the details about a news story and 40% say their search engine is their “most important” resource for this key task. You come to us for world , US , entertainment and local news and you’ve given us feedback that we hadn’t met all of your needs and expectations. We’ve listened and have launched features that address some of your most critical pain points. Improving relevance and the freshness of content was at the top of our “to do” list. I’d love to demonstrate the improvements via a link, but it would be out of date as soon as I posted this so you’ll have to let us know next time you search for a breaking story on Bing. We have made improvements to news query intent and the speed with which we index news articles. We’ve also improved our local news experience. I grew up in a little town in the middle of the corn fields, Watseka, Illinois. Prior to this release Watseka was about as present in Bing News as Brigadoon . I now have my location set to Watseka so when I check my daily headlines...

    Summer of Shopping

    The Bing Shopping team listened to your feedback and has come back with some exciting updates and new features to Bing Shopping. In addition to the new user interface we made a lot of ‘under the hood’ enhancements that surface more relevant results. Our goal is to make shopping intuitive and easy for you. Let’s talk about the updates. First off, you’ll l notice that we have helpful new refinements on the left-rail. Expanding from the category, brand and price filters, we have added a ton of relevant filters that help you make better and faster decisions. There is now information on product descriptions and product reviews and ratings, which are rated as most important when searching online for a product so we’ve made it easier for you to sort by these descriptions. Let’s say you are in the market for a laptop this summer and your budget is between 400-500 dollars. If you are like me, I try and maximize on RAM, using the helpful left hand rail I choose 4GB RAM and within a few clicks I have narrowed my choices from 38,000+ laptops to 3 laptops. The Black Lenovo G550 really looks interesting! Discussing what we have just purchased...

    Bing on your mobile browser, iPhone, and...

    This is a big week for the Bing mobile team. First, not only is our updated iPhone app available in the app store , but we just rolled out a big update for people who want to use Bing from a mobile browser on their high-end smartphones. We all love our apps, but sometimes it’s easier to search from the browser instead of through an app. The good news is that many newer phones have powerful browsers, so Bing (m.bing.com) can look and act like an app without you needing to download or launch one. I’ll describe some of the new features below. Second, Bing is available as a default option on iPhone 4 and those who upgraded to the iOS 4 software. It’s really easy to reset your search default to Bing. I’ll show you how and you’ll be glad you did. What’s new at m.bing.com? (Ok, for those of you who don’t like to read, we asked Raghava Kashyapa to demo some new features for us, check out his video . This could be his shot at a new gig in Hollywood. You decide.) Try these new features on your Windows phone, iPhone, Android, Palm, Kin, or Zune HD today at m.bing.com : • The Home page now features the Bing image of the day ( people love...

    Bing’s Summer Update

    It’s been a crazy and exciting year for Bing. We’ve been humbled by the reception we have received in the market, and grateful for all the feedback on what you have liked, and what we need to do better. Today we are beginning the rollout of our summer update, which is a release packed with features aimed at making it easier for you to complete tasks and make better decisions. With this release, we’ve attempted to do a couple of things. First, we want to better understand search intent and surface the right tools for you in visually organized, easy-to-use ways. To this end, we have made some major changes to Bing’s user interface which we hope you will like and find useful. We are introducing a feature called the Quick Tabs which sit across the top of the Bing pages highlighting the best and most relevant search results available on Bing, organized in tabs that match the most common decisions you might want to make based on what we know of your search intent. Secondly, we have gone deeper in some of our existing vertical areas, with more definitive content sources for health related queries, more decision-focused travel answers, new and more relevant...

    A New Entertainment Experience for Bing

    In this release of Bing one of the biggest investments we are making is in the area of entertainment. As the content on the web has exploded, it has become difficult to navigate and find what you are looking for. In the field of entertainment, 76 percent of people use search to help find and navigate their entertainment options online, but only 10 percent say they have a trusted place to go. So we see a great opportunity to help customers make important entertainment decisions -- from deciding what movie to buy or see, which TV shows to watch online or on your TV, what music to listen to, how to find and safely play your favorite casual games – Bing is making a first step today to help make entertainment on the web easy and fun, so you spend less time searching for entertainment and more time doing the stuff you love. Working with key groups inside Microsoft that have deep entertainment heritage, we’ve made significant investments in four key areas: Music, Gaming, Movies and TV. Our focus was on making it easy – if you can type in a search box, you can have a great entertainment experience on Bing. Or, if you prefer a browsing, discovery oriented experience,...

    Bing Gets a Fresh Look

    Bing is getting some exciting enhancements today as we roll out our spring wave of features. Our user research guided us to make an investment bet in entertainment , built some great new decision-making tools in areas like autos and finance that continue our journey toward a better understanding of your search intent so we can match it with more effective and relevant tools and information.

    Bing for iPhone Update

    Today we’re stoked to have an update to the Bing app for iPhone and iPod Touch for all of you. There are a few new features to tell you about – some of which you’ll see right on the new home page. Social – Now you can connect your Facebook and Twitter accounts and see combined status updates from your friends from within the Bing app. But that’s easy. When we asked what else we could do with this personal intelligence, we looked at the data behind how people were using their social networks. Turns out that over 40% of the time when people ask ambiguous queries that don’t have a defined answer (like where should I go to eat tonight), social networks are faster at providing a great answer than traditional search engines. So now when you search for something using our (beautiful, if I might say) Bing app, you’ll see web results along with relevant results from your social network . So if you search for a movie, you’ll see movie showtimes first, then anything your friends may have said about it next. This is also handy for local businesses or products where you want to see what your network is saying. Last, when you find something...

    Part II: Internet Literacy and Credibility

    Betsynote: Welcome to Part II of the interview with Andrew Flanagin and Miriam Metzger, two professors at the University of California Santa Barbara, who have just completed a first-of-its-kind study researching how adults and children are using online information. The prior section talked about who they studied, online behavior patterns as children aged, and the effects of the digital divide on the research. Part II focuses on how confident kids are, what cues they are using in the content to determine if it’s valid, what the research suggests should be done in teaching Critical Thinking in schools, and the road ahead for this kind of online research. The full results and findings from this study will be available via MIT Press this year. III. Self-confidence Another thing that struck me was both the parents' and the kids' belief in themselves. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the study seemed a bit like Lake Wobegon, where everyone is good-looking and smarter than average -- at least to themselves. Yes, this struck us as well. The tendency for groups of people to believe themselves to be better than average in some way is pretty well-documented in social scientific research...

    Part I: Internet Literacy and Credibility...

    Betsynote: Thanks to introductions by other educators, I was able to connect with Andrew Flanagin and Miriam Metzger , two professors at the University of California Santa Barbara, who have been doing research around Internet literacy and credibility for more than a decade now. They are just wrapping up a study supported by the MacArthur Foundation about how adults and children are using online information. They'll be publishing their findings soon in a book published by MIT Press, but in this interview they give some of the highlights of this groundbreaking work. What's interesting about this study -- aside from the fact they surveyed almost 3,000 children age 11-18, as well as one of each of the children's parents-- is that it's the first systematic look at how kids take in online information as well as how they assess it for credibility. Because it’s a long interview based on a meaty study, we broke this article into two parts. Part I – Who We Are Online gives some background on the researchers, who the researchers interviewed, online behaviors and used of virtual worlds, and how the “digital divide” played into the results.

    Today Opera released a beta of its latest browser ( www.opera.com ).

It’s very easy to use Bing in Opera. Just click the drop-down menu in the search box in the upper right hand corner of the browser, and pick Bing from the list (see below).

    Adora Svitak on Critical Thinking and 21st...

    Betsynote: The Bing team first met 12-year old Adora Svitak virtually when she presented her amazing talk at TED earlier this year as one of the world’s youngest teachers. Since then, we’ve been impressed with both her sharp observations and relentless interest in the state of kids today, and in helping all kids gain the critical thinking skills to navigate the Internet safely. Here we asked her to give her thoughts on Critical Thinking and provide some insights into the way she teaches her classes how to be detectives hunting down information for their school projects and daily life. Since a lot of her material is presented online , we also include a link to one of her more popular critical thinking videos. Imagine this: a team of detectives are creeping stealthily toward a crime scene, sniffing around for any clues that might further the investigation. But these detectives aren't solving murders or chasing suspects--they're fourth and fifth grade students in Green Bay, Wisconsin, putting their critical thinking skills to use and being what I like to call Web detectives. Let me explain. These elementary-school students are part of a program which I teach...
