Facebook COO, Sheryl Sandberg, confirmed to the Telegraph UK, that their updates will go live on Bing within two months.

She also addresses the privacy concerns for Facebook users, saying that they will only be streaming updates of those members who have set their privacy settings to allow viewing by “everyone on web.”

Thanks for sharing this. Yes, I do believe that though these online communities do foster a sense of "community" it also have made lives more transparent. My biggest concern is that there could be "researchers" out there who are using such updates for non-benevolent means. If I was a parent, I would be very vigilant on this little privacy setting because it could make a big difference.
