Bing just got updated its Friends' Photos expereince with new modern user interface (UI) making it easier to scan, discover and quickly find a photo from your friend on Facebook.

"Friends' Photos" which was launched last year in August, lets you quickly find that special photo (out of your friends' thousands) on Facebook (which now has more than "300 million photos uploaded to Facebook per day").

Microsoft's "modern user interface" that serve as the foundation for Windows 8, Windows Phone and Xbox Live--has been rolling out across company's products and services.

New Slideshow mode in Bing Friends Photos

In its Friends' Photos today, Microsoft has introduced a new "tile layout" that makes it faster and more seamless to browse through your friends' photos.

Also, implemented today is the new Slideshow Mode that allows you to simply click on a photo, and lets you see more photos from your Facebook friends that match your search. From there, you can also search for additional photos, or simply browse.

Bing notes, those concern with privacy need not to worry, as "your Facebook friends will only be able to see the photos you have made viewable and your photos will never be shared with the public."

Finally, the company has also published a new television advert highlighting the social search integration between the Facebook and Microsoft's Bing search engine.

In the video, Evan Lew, Director of Product Marketing at Bing, explains "how connecting your Facebook account to Bing can deliver great search results from the web, your friends and experts... all in one place."

Great!, but Microsoft please do note, the connectivity between Facebook and your social networking project Socl is broken for the last four days, it does not connect users.
