Facebook just announced the biggest change to its design since Timeline shook things up back in 2011 — and actually, it looks pretty awesome. The big, popping visuals that Timeline introduced certainly heralded the News Feed redesign that Facebook announced today at its Menlo Park, Calif., headquarters.
Big Changes Rolling Out Gradually
Facebook learned its lesson from that redesign too: the new News Feed will be rolling out, starting today, very gradually — folding in user feedback all along the way. The new News Feed design even includes a button that lets you revert to the old design, you know, if you’re the afraid-of-change type.
But even if you are that type, this interface overhaul will probably strike your fancy. I didn’t even realize how long in the tooth Facebook was starting to look until I activated the new design.
If you’re anxious for a peek at the new News Feed, we’ve got plenty of images outlining the major new features. And don’t panic — change can be a good thing.
