New Search Tools Emphasize Visual Images in Online News & Information

Steaming video and pictures are taking on a new importance online. Microsoft and Google have two new visual search features to allow users sort through popular search categories by using pictures. 

Bing’s Visual Search and Google Fast Flip are designed to replicate the experience of flipping through pages of a magazine or newspaper, helping users searching for news and information find what they want faster.  Google plans to share ad revenue from Fast Flip pages with the original publishers of the content.  Check out Bing’s Visual search at http://www.bing.com/visualsearch and Google Fast Flip at http://fastflip.googlelabs.com/
