Bing Adds Quora Experts to Social Sidebar

Quora and Bing Search

August 22, 2012 Bing announced they have added Quora content to the Bing search bar.

Quora is a question and answer website formed by users across the web – it’s a social answers site.

Quora explained that privacy controls are operated with this. They said content on Bing works with the general search engine privacy setting on Quora, so if you choose not to share off of Quora to search engines, that is always an option on your Quora settings page at www.quora.com/settings.

Therefore now, Bing has the following suppliers on their search bar, Facebook, Foursquare, Twitter, Linkedin and Quora

Here is a picture of the implementation:
