MENLO PARK, Calif. — Facebook announced a new version of Facebook Thursday designed to reduce clutter and focus more on stories from the people you care about. You see all the stories you saw in your News Feed before, but with a fresh new look.
News Feed currently shows what your friends like, what music they’re listening to, the pictures they’ve taken and so on. But it lacks a means to sort through the vast amount of information that the site’s billion-plus users post on a daily basis.
With the new design, now Facebook will have the same look and feel on mobile, tablet and web. For example, the left-hand menu is accessible anywhere you go on Facebook. You also have a way to jump right to the top of News Feed whenever new stories come in.
Facebook will be rolling out the new design slowly over the coming weeks on web and mobile. If you’d like to get it early, visit www.facebook.com/newsfeed and add yourself to the waiting list. These design updates will be available on your iPhone and iPad in the coming weeks and to Android soon after.
