Social Web Experience for Internet Explorer

Sign in to queue

Description

Today a new experiment comes out of Redmond in the form of a new toolbar for Internet Explorer that analyzes the web pages you are looking at and applies what it sees to your social networks. This means the proper nouns and contextual references in the sites you're looking at are matched up to the things your friends might be talking about. So if you're browsing a movie review, you may see what a friend wrote about that movie as an inline contextual update.

Emre Kiciman and CK Wang from Microsoft Research joined us at the Channel 9 studio to talk about the Social Web toolbar and how it works. You can download the Social Web Experience Toolbar for IE here.
