Facebook is ready with its first major core change since the introduction of the Facebook Timeline at the end of 2011 and this time they have put their focus on revamping their news feed. “The news feed is one of the most important things we’ve built,” Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg said during a press event.
…the stories around you deserve to be displayed with more than just text. […] How we’re all sharing is changing and the news feed needs to evolve with those changes.
The newly introduced news feed will cater to users with bigger images, multiple feeds and mobile consistency. Facebook with this change has focused on developing a better mobile-friendly experience given the changing dynamics of using social media sites. Since the concept of storytelling through images has received more attention and became the last word in social-sharing experiences, Facebook has been concentrating on creating an imagecentric news feed for itself.
Along with these comes the option for users to control over how the feeds are displayed and to customize the wall as per their personal desire. The new news feed being released from today will add a newer dimension to the experience of logging on to Facebook though (for Facebook) it won’t over till the fat lady sings!
