Facebook Overhauls News Feed, Emphasis Now on Photos

On Thursday at Facebook HQ, Mark Zuckerberg just unveiled a new look for news feed that uses a “mobile-inspired” consistent design across devices, lets you drill into specific content type feeds, and offers larger images. Photo albums have gotten a facelift as well to be more immersive, and links shared will have longer blurb to preview what you’re about to click to. The changes will start to roll out today and you’ll see them over the next few weeks. The roll out will be slow and careful so Facebook can get feedback about what’s working and what’s not. Some other news feed design changes include that checkins to places now have a larger map to show people exactly where you are. Pinterest posts to Facebook are now more vivid, so what you see on Facebook “better reflects what you see on Pinterest”. Videos appear larger too. If multiple friends share the same post, you’ll see their faces to the left of the post.
