Facebook Kills Its Splashy News Feed For Something More Restrained

A year after redesigning its News Feed, Facebook has undone the makeover for a simpler, cleaner layout, which was officially unveiled Thursday.

Last year’s change, which proved unpopular with Facebook users, took on a more photo-driven approach, with big images and featured profile pics, along with a drop-down menu of feeds that now resides in the sidebar.

The Verge noted that the look—which will roll out over globally over the next few weeks—seems reminiscent of the social network’s mobile design.
