While Google has chosen not to renew its partnership with Twitter for social searches, Bing will still be onboard – according to a recent tweet exchange between the Bing Twitter account and the official Twitter account (and also confirmed by a Twitter spokesperson). With Google having its own social networks, Google+ and Google Buzz, it’s an understandable move – after all, why would the company want to promote a competitor’s service?
But since Google’s own offerings haven’t exactly been the most popular services around, it’ll be interesting to see whether it will lose consumers to Bing when it comes to social searching. What is your view on social searching? I personally don’t use it much, and it doesn’t bother me because if I wanted to search for Tweets, I’d head over to the Twitter website to do it.
