According to Mark Zuckerburg, Facebook is trying to give everyone in the world the best possible personal newspaper. It should have high quality content from renowned sources, as well as what your friends and family are saying. It should be visual, rich and engaging. Now, almost 50% of the average news feed is photos and visual content. Page posts from businesses now comprises over 25%. This new News Feed design reflects this evolving face of news, and encompasses three main areas: Rich Stories, Choice of Feeds and Mobile Consistency.
The goal of the redesign was to make our stories shine, and reduce the clutter that was impacting story delivery. In the new Facebook redesign, photos are larger and higher quality. Photo albums are similarly improved.
