It’s not clear how many Facebook users make their status updates publicly available, but for those who do, Microsoft has struck a data partnership to presumably index them in its Bing search engine more efficiently.

Bing will also include Twitter updates, AllThingsD reports, and both deals will be announced at the Web 2.0
