Facebook Announces News Feed Redesign
It's been a while since we had an update to the Facebook UI, right?
It seems Facebook users barely have time to get used to the site's newest design when talk of yet another redesign starts doing the rounds. That said, it's been a while since the social networking giant revamped its user interface. Some might say it's high time Facebook rejigged its look. If you're one of those people, well, today's a happy day. Facebook today unveiled a new take on its news feed, which it is rolling out across multiple platforms.
Designed to reduce clutter and focus more on stories from your friends, the improved news feed now features an 'All Friends' feed, a 'Photos' feed with nothing but photos, a 'Music' feed filled with posts about the music you listen to, and a 'Following' feed filled with updates on the Pages you like and people you follow.
In addition to these new feeds, the update will mean a more uniform Facebook experience across mobile, tablet, and web. Facebook highlighted the face that the left-hand menu will now be accessible anywhere you go on Facebook and users will also have a way to jump right to the top of News Feed whenever new stories come in.
The update will be rolled out in the coming weeks along with updates to the iPhone, iPad and Android applications. Those that want it now can hit www.facebook.com/newsfeed and add themselves to the waiting list.
