Facebook announced today that it is having a ‘spring clean’ of the ‘news feed’ part of the network. This short video explains a bit about why:
The new design has a lot more white space and happens to look an awful lot like Google+! I predicted last year that images were going to be the big deal in Social Media in 2012. This is looking like having no signs of abating. Want to get a status update noticed on Facebook? Add a picture. Seriously.
This time, the revamp looks great, not a million miles from what it’s currently like but definitely a lot easier on the eye. I’m hoping, therefore, that this won’t release the avalanche of complaints from the launch of the new timeline back in Autumn 2011. There is also a much better focus on making the platform work well on mobile devices.
