Facebook announced major changes to its News Feed today, revamping the look and feel of the feature that first shook up the web back in 2006. Its stated goal with the changes is to reduce clutter and draw more attention to the stories that users care about. From the changes, it’s clear that the company is focusing on improving the experience of sharing photos with family and friends.
After rolling out a similar mobile update a few weeks ago, Facebook is now bringing the “bigger is better” mentality to their standard news feed as well. In case you don’t use Facebook mobile, what this translates into for you is bigger, browser-filling photo previews that should make it that much easier to determine whether or not it’s worth scrolling through all 200 of your friend’s newly uploaded vacation pics. This minor overhaul should start hitting news feeds over the next couple of days.
