What You’re Having For Lunch Soon To Be Bingable

Kara Swhisher is breaking the news that Microsoft has inked an important new search deal with Twitter and Facebook.
The pact will bring status updates to the Bing search engine. Swisher says, “The deal is a definite blow to the dominant search engine, since-for the first time-data will be available on Bing that is not on Google.”
Facebook sees 40 million updates a day on average. That’s a lot of mostly meaningless data to mine and repackage.
Of course, FB users can opt not to have their updates made searchable. But still, it’s a lot of data. So I hope Bing knows which data is most relevant upon query, otherwise a terrible mess is about to unfold.
