Facebook has announced some changes coming to your News Feed. The “spring cleaning” to the news feed is to reduce the clutter on your feed. This is one of the most major redesigns I’ve seen to Facebook ever since I started using it.

“What we’re trying to do is give everyone in the world the best personalized newspaper we can,” Zuckerberg said. “The best personalized newspaper should be intricate, rich, and engaging.”

The new changes basically revolve around “bigger” and “larger” changes. They’ve redesigned the feed to show larger photos, maps, news articles and app information. “Visuals” will increase user engagement, Facebook described. For business, this is great, as it would allow them to showcase larger photos to attract the users engagement. The new design will follow designs from the mobile applications for iOS and Android, with a redesigned sidebar. The “mobile app” look will be coming soon to your News Feed.

Other changes include looking at your feed from different options. While some of these options are already present, they’ve also included some more. This includes:

  • Most Recent
  • All Friends
  • Photos
  • Music
  • Following
  • Games
  • Groups

Check out this video from Facebook regarding the changes:

Here are some of the new layout design elements as well:

Personally from what I see, I enjoy the new changes. I know people also grunt and groan about the ever expanding changes to Facebook, but honestly, this change is not bad. Eventually, you’ll get used to it. The new changes will be rolled out to certain users today, and gradually towards a wider audience. We’ve been signed up for an early invitation to the new look, so check back at JTS in the near future!
