Facebook’s latest News Feed makeover feels like newspaper
Facebook has redesigned its social network to address complaints that the News Feed on its website has turned into a jumble of monotonous musings and random photos.In an attempt to breathe new life into Facebook’s News Feed, the company will introduce controls that allow people to sort streams of photos and other material into organized sections.
With the makeover unveiled Thursday, Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg hopes to turn the News Feed into something more like a newspaper tailored to the particular interests of each of the social network’s more than 1 billion worldwide users.
The new features will enable users to choose streams of content that may feature nothing but photos or posts from their closest friends, family members or favorite businesses. Or they will be able to peruse content about music, or sports, as if they were grabbing a section of a newspaper. Other newspaper-like changes will include lists of events that users’ social circles have flagged for the upcoming weekend and other summaries meant to resemble a table of contents. AP/Read More
