Today, Facebook launched their heavily anticipated, redesigned news feed. Many of the rumours preceding the event held true.
Facebook’s new news feed will display photos, videos, and shared links on a larger scale. This reinforces belief that Facebook was looking to emphasize visual content for the new look.
“Goodbye Clutter: Hello bright, beautiful stories.”
The old, unified news feed will now be divided through a series of feeds, separating the content by likes, music, status updates, and of course, posts with media included. All of these feeds are organized chronologically. Mark Zuckerburg attributed these changes to creating the perfect ‘personalized newspaper’ for Facebook’s users.
Choice of feeds:
And it looks like it might work that way. These news feeds will organize themselves by activity. So, if you’re actively checking your music feed, it will jump to the top of your feeds.
Facebook was proud to present mobile consistency to its applications and web experience. This new experience should look and feel the same across all platforms. Your Facebook look the exact same way as it does on your PC as it does on your iPad.
A limited roll out of the redesigned news feed is set to go out today.
