Bing Social now recommends Twitter users that a user could follow, based on their search query. The new feature is known as ‘People Recommendation’.
With the number of Twitter accounts reaching 145 million, and continuing to grow, it would be difficult for users to decide which accounts they would like to follow and also to know whether or not the account they are following is genuine or not.
Bing social will help these users by now recommending people who they think the user would be interested in following, based on the search he conducts.
When a user types a particular query, Bing will recommend three people related to the query, who would be most influential or popular with regard to that query.
Representatives of Bing have said that this facility has been “developed, to help consumers identify the most influential people to watch on Twitter based on their interests.”
The list of these recommended people is available on in the right hand panel of the Bing Social page.
The service also lets users know, whether or not the account they are following is genuine, by means of a blue and white check mark next to the name.
A similar suggestion feature has already been available on Twitter for a while now.
