What you need to know

  • Microsoft recently began testing a new program called Bing Pages.
  • The program allows you to personalize your profile that appears on Bing and Microsoft products.
  • The program also allows businesses to customize Outlook profiles.

Microsoft recently began testing a new program that helps you personalize your online presence. Bing Pages launched in beta this week and allows you to control how you appear on Bing and other Microsoft products. Twitter user and Windows developer Arlo first pointed the program out.

Microsoft's summary of the program breaks down three ways it works. First, the program pulls together social media feeds into a page that you control. Second, it helps you grow your audience by letting you promote your social media posts for free. Third, it allows businesses and brands to manage their public personas on Bing, Outlook, and other Microsoft products.

After you click on the get started button, you can enter your email, social media details, and add your own website to your submission. Microsoft uses Twitter to authenticate your account.

The program is in beta, and at this time, it's unclear how many people will receive new profiles. The profiles that are created seem to be similar to the results you see for famous people.

  • Bravo, Arlo
    Bing Profiles
    They should indicate the rate of penetration that makes the individual become a celebrity, right ?
