Social search is US only[edit]

The "killer" feature of Bing is its Facebook integration but it does not work worldwide -- that note should be added since it leaves it as a pretty weak alternative to Google in non-US countries.

Proposed merge with Decision engine[edit]

The only sourced bits of information in this page are about Bing. The rest of it extrapolates the Microsoft marketing term "decision engine" to other, hardly related, types of websites. QVVERTYVS (hm?) 08:30, 28 August 2013 (UTC)

Update for Alexa ranking[edit]

I think the current Alexa ranking for bing is out of date.. the ranking states that bing is 19 in Alexa's ranking which is false, the current rank for bing in alexa is 22. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hims01 (talkcontribs) 19:06, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

I second the above user's concern on making sure the Alexa ranking is updated. The "as of" currently there is May 2014, which pretty much indicates no one has actually set a bot to update monthly as it says. If it were to be updated, note the number on the page (26 global) is different from the current ranking (23 global).[1] AndrewOne (talk) 03:12, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

Homepage photo localized?[edit]

Does Bing localize the homepage photo, so that users in different countries see a different photo? Wassupwestcoast (talk) 16:31, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
