Klout Users Can Now Customize How They Appear in Bing Search Results

Microsoft and Klout extended their partnership Friday with the introduction of new Klout-verified photos on Bing.

Now when people search for you on Bing you can dictate what photo shows up in search results. You can also add links to your social media profiles, as well as your pubic personal summery on LinkedIn.

Photos and summary information are brought in only if you have a Klout account connected to your LinkedIn profile and mirror what you currently share on LinkedIn. If your Klout account is also connected to Twitter, then your two most influential public tweets over the past seven days will also be displayed below your profile. If your Instagram account is connected as well, then your most influential Instagram photos from the past 90 days will also be displayed.


Bing originally partnered with Klout in September of last year. At launch, the feature simply displayed a person’s Klout score in search results. In May of this year the two companies furthered the partnership by having Klout users answer commonly-searched questions based on their expertise, that are then displayed within search results.

What do you think of Klout and Bing’s partnership? Do you think social information is helping the search engine? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
