Bing News Gets an Update

By Africa S. Hands

From Bing Search Blog:

Today’s news is propelled by “likes” and “tweets” and headlines rise and fall in less time than it takes to eat lunch. That’s why we’ve refreshed Bing News to make it easier for you to stay on top of the stuff you care about.

Our new modern layout is built for touch and, showcases top trending topics from Facebook, Twitter and Bing as well as related people from across the web.

Let’s take a look at what’s new with Bing News:

Adaptive design for any device: Because we should showcase the news in the format that makes sense for you regardless if you’re on a tablet, phone or PC, the new Bing News automatically adapts to fit your browser width.

Trending topics:Bing News now surfaces the latest buzz from Facebook, Twitter and Bing. Cut through the clutter from across the Web with Bing’s real-time view of the most relevant breaking trends and social conversations, available all in one place. At the top of the Bing News page, you can easily browse the latest headlines with the news carousel showcasing the latest trending topics in categories including US, world, local, entertainment, sports, politics, and more. If you search for a celebrity or politician who is making headlines, the recent news topics about that person will also be showcased in the carousel. On the right side of the page, you will see what news is trending on Facebook and Twitter based on popular “likes” and “tweets.”
