Bing Now Allows You to Search Your Facebook Friends’ Photos

The nightmare of privacy-concerned-activists finally came true: you can now Bing-search your friends’ Facebook photos!

The search engine owned by Microsoft now lets users to quickly find specific photos from Facebook. The new feature, which is called “Friend’s Photos”, will allow users to browse their Facebook friends’ photo collections.

This new Bing feature also allows user to find friend’s photos based on the specific keywords in photo captions or album titles; something that users are not able to do on Facebook itself. Mashable provides us with an example: “For example, if I search for ‘Italy’ on Facebook, there’s no way to find my friends’ photos with related captions. But on Bing search, I can see all the photos of my friends in Italy.

But will it actually violate people’s privacy? According to Bing Team on their blog, “On Bing, your Facebook privacy settings are always respected. Your Facebook friends will only be able to see the photos you have made viewable, and you will only see photos your friends have made viewable, and your photos will never be shared with the public.
