Bing now lets users connect pages found in their search results list to themselves or to Facebook friends (only for US users logged in via Facebook). The linking is reported on Facebook and shows up in Bing search results. Several Bing apps are featured in the Windows 8 consumer preview version. Bing Maps has updated its pushpin and pop-up functionality to include color-coding for different pin types and pins that shrink when clicked to expose more of the underlying map. Bing added more updated transit information, and directions (including transit) can be sent as a text message.
