The New News Feed
Full coverage of Facebook’s new look:
Facebook released its latest redesign to the News Feed today — a long-awaited update to what it is the veritable town center of the social network.
The company knows that it’s News Feed is the hub of all activity on Facebook as well as the place from which it makes the most money. The redesign will help those who use Facebook to have a better experience on mobile, to see more relevant content, and to view bigger photos. It will also help Facebook to target customers with “richer and more immersive” advertising.
Throughout the presentation, Zuckerberg continued to refer to the New Feed as the “personalized newspaper” for all you Facebook-using folks out there. If successful, Zuckerberg could have just created an interesting social news dynamic with Facebook as the newspaper: full of analysis and commentary, and Twitter as the newswire with quick hits of breaking news.
Check out the gallery below and let us know what you think of the new design.
