Bing is no stranger to Facebook integration, and its latest update takes things a step further by letting you search through your friends' photos. The new Friends' Photos option — which still includes a beta tag — lets you search through images uploaded to Facebook by your friends without leaving Microsoft's search engine. You can also use it to browse through recently uploaded photos — both your own and your friends'. Microsoft was quick to point out that the only photos that will be searchable are ones that you and your friends have agreed to make viewable. "On Bing, your Facebook privacy settings are always respected," senior program manager Ian Lin said. The update comes exactly one month after Microsoft another Facebook feature to its search engine, letting you ask your friends for help when making a search query.
