Facebook News Feed redesign coming up!

Facebook News Feed redesign coming up!

Facebook is continuing to maintain its position by introducing new stuff every now and then. We have another update to the news feed coming in a while, and it’s designed to unify the interfaces across platforms and make it uniform.

Goodbye clutter, hello bright & beautiful stories – that’s what Facebook is trying to do here. Basically, it’s meaning to simplify everything to work similarly with its iOS and Android counterparts. It features the same menu that slides out on the left side, with your usual stuff on top (notifications, friend requests and messages), while stories are now enclosed in rounded rectangles and are more media-centric.

Somehow, we can’t help but feel that Facebook took a page from Google Plus’ design language. Moreover, Facebook says that the update will allow you to further customize the news feed contents.

If you want to be one of those who’ll get it first, you can sign up here. We’re not expecting it anytime soon, since the same instance happened with Graph Search; some of us signed up and yet there’s no word nor trial.

We’ve read on some reactions to this, and some people were just like “a dislike button would have been better” or something more objective like “fix the Facebook Android app first (No internet connection)“. Does a redesign make sense? Of course, changes are inevitable, but is it supposed to be prioritized over other little things? Facebook has a position to defend, and we have yet to see how they shall protect their standing on the industry.

    Im actually excited for this. Facebook’s current design is getting old IMO. They need a fresh new look. But yeah they need to fix their sluggish android app.

  4. @Lol I don’t think so. That is their main source of money. I think it would be better if they will implement a strict policy for those who are flooding your wall with advertisements :)

    its very obvious that they took cues from the design of Google+

  6. I updated my phone’s facebook app this afternoon and now I couldn’t open it anymore. It always crashes.. I don’t want to uninstall it for fear that it would mess up my contacts. Anybody here encountered the same problem? I’d really appreciate any help.

    • Syempre, hindi lang naman sila ang Blogger sa mundo. Magreklamo ka kung copy paste yung content mula sa ibang website.

    “fix the Facebook Android app first (No internet connection)” … Duh! Kasalanan pala ni Facebook yon? Akala ko kasalanan ng ISP/network ko yon, eh. :P
