Bing Upgrades to Display Pinterest Boards in Image Search Results
Bing and Pinterest have formed a unique partnership.
As of today, the struggling engine has announced that they've teamed up with the image-based social network to include Pinterest boards in search results.
Jon Noronha, Nevin Yang and Deepak Santhanam, Program Managers of Bing write on their official blog:
"But lately, we've noticed that the most interesting pictures on the web are being collected by people, not computers. On sites like Pinterest, passionate curators can build up a collection of ideas that shows off their unique style. We started to ask ourselves, what if we could have the best of both worlds, combining the power of algorithms with the taste and judgment of real people.
Image collections are great for a search like Halloween decorating ideas, where we bring together cute pictures from around the web with creative collections by people who are passionate about decorating their house in the best way possible. Or try a search like updo hairstyles, where Image collections show you a variety of beautiful styles to get inspired from."
