Facebook new look -- it is happening again. Facebook is changing the look of its "News Feed" and unveiling it on March 7. The News Feed has not been changed since September 2011 according to Reuters and many users didn't like (pun intended) those changes. Of course this means that many users are worried about the new changes that are coming.
Facebook is being very cautious about the new changes and they have not said anything about what the new News Feed might look like. Analysts and techies believe that the new changes will be positive and they will make the site even more user friendly -- with an emphasis on mobile device accessibility.
Still, Facebook new look headlines make people nervous. However, the corporation seems to keep evolving and as users integrate themselves more and more, they get used to the new features and everything turns out just fine. After so many complaints about the new "timeline," most people can hardly remember what the old one used to look like. Life changes... and so does Facebook.
Many users have been accessing the site from their mobile devices more and more. Research proves that the influx of smartphones and tablets have people using Facebook in many other ways than on a desktop or laptop computer. However, Facebook on those devices doesn't work the same.
Perhaps the new look of Facebook will better suit the needs of app users and won't mess too much with how things work regularly... the only hint that the media is reporting? Bigger photos and videos on the News Feed. Are you looking forward to the "new Facebook"?
