Late last week, Facebook announced yet another change to the way its News Feed looks. Facebook seems to always be tinkering with something to the point where updates are so frequent and regular you can almost set your watch by them. The News Feed’s look has already begun to roll out and should be widely available by the end of the month. Facebook said the new look was inspired by its mobile app, and it’s easy to immediately see the differences. Photos are bigger than ever and links have less text to clutter up the re-design’s prettier visuals. You also have more of a choice in what your News Feed shows, with options for feeds that only display photos, or music stories, or games activity, or posts by pages or friends. Facebook is becoming a platform dominated by the visual, and this re-design reaffirms that shift. Who wants to read when you can look at gorgeous pictures and interactive photo albums?
