Microsoft has introduced a new feature that lets you manage your presence in Bing search results. Linked Pages, as it's called, lets you choose which search results are actually related to you — whether it's a personal site, your workplace, or even sites you just happen to like — and then link them so that they will show up when you're searched in Bing. In order to access the feature (which is only available in the US at the moment) you'll need to log in with your Facebook account, and then search for yourself and tag appropriate pages with a "link to me" button. Linked Pages also lets you add links for friends, who will in turn receive a Facebook post requesting approval. This isn't the first time the two have worked together on Bing, as they've already got a deal in place that provides the search engine with access to Facebook's feeds — and considering that Microsoft is a Facebook investor, we wouldn't expect the collaboration to end anytime soon.
