Facebook Finally Releasing The Redesigned News Feed To Everyone With Some Improvements


Do you remember that redesigned Facebook News Feed which is launched exactly a year ago? You might have in the waiting list if you have applied for it. Now, the wait is over, finally, Facebook is rolling out an improved version of that old News Feed redesign to everyone.

The announcement was made in Facebook business blog saying, “You may recall that last year we experimented with a complete redesign of News Feed for desktop and mobile. People who tested it told us that they liked the bigger photos and images, but found it more difficult to navigate Facebook overall,” wrote Facebook. “The updated design has the best of both worlds: it keeps the layout and navigation people liked, but offers bigger images and photos, as well as a new font.”
