Facebook’s Bold and New Look, Literally

In the course of bringing new things and updates to the users, facebook.com has recently came up with it’s new bold look. Finally, FB users are getting a new News Feed. On Thursday, i.e. 6th of March 2014, Facebook started out the latest and updated look of the News Feed. The change is definitely not only in a new News Feed, but the whole new look of your Facebook home. With new fonts and bigger, bolder News Feed, for some this is too complex and not eye-catchy at all.

There is no sudden changes in your Facebook Profile look and appearance though. The new look is only in the Home section. Facebook is more about Photos. Even the people loves looking at the photos on Facebook. This is one of the design that people like. With larger photos, you do not have to click on the photos again in order to maximize it. This presents the individual photos in their original resolution and aspect ratio. Designer and Concept Developer are doing their best to make Facebook more attractive and user-friendly. The new fonts are simpler sans-serif fonts, and are more like system default fonts such as Times New Roman and Arial. On the right hand side of the Facebook home page, for the Facebook page suggestion, they have added ‘Nearby Places’. You can like the page and even like the page. Other than that, everything is basically the same.

About the new News Feed and Updates, Facebook News Feed Product Manager Greg Marra said, “We saw that there were some feeds people enjoyed and checked often, and there were some feeds people checked a few times and then stopped using. We’re keeping around the feeds people liked the most — Games Feed, Pages Feed, Friends List Feeds — but are removing some that people didn’t use.” It is quiet early to say whether this Facebook new look is a success or not. Let’s see what happens!
