Goodbye Clutter, Facebook's New NEWS-FEED is coming soon. Facebook is about to revamp another facet of its network: the News Feed. The News Feed is coming under increasing scrutiny at the moment, after Facebook began selling paid promotional posts on people's feeds. The results haven't been too popular with regular users, and more than a few advertisers have been cowed by reams of critical comments from users who are sick of the spam. Almost 50 per cent of content is photos, and 25 per cent content per comes from public posts. Zuck said it's designed to give rich stories, with your choice of feed, and a mobile-inspired UI.
Julia Zhou takes over to explain, "They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but in the old News Feed it's nearer 500. Now we're making photos bigger and more valuable, and revamping photo albums." Articles, too, are getting bigger images, a bigger title, and a longer summary. At the end of the day, the most-shared articles on topics will be made available, if they go along with your interests. You can also find out what events your friends have planned for the day. The new design starts today
