Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerburg announced a major change to the social media site on Thursday. The text-based application appears to be jumping into the news business.
Facebook is preparing to unveil a new version of News Feed — the flow of status updates, photos and advertisements its users see on the Facebook web page.
Facebook is attempting to stay relevant about one month after a Pew Research Center’s Internet and American Life Project found that some 61 percent of Facebook users report taking a hiatus for reasons that range from boredom to too much irrelevant information to Lent.
Zuckerburg says News Feed is a personalized newspaper that should have a broad diversity of content. The personalized newspaper should have high quality public content from world-renowned sources, and should have socially and locally relevant updates from friends and relatives.
Designed for the way that users are sharing and trends expected.
Three features are focused for the design of Facebook …
(1) Rich stories — visual and engaging
(2) Your choice of different feeds by digging into any topic you want.
(3) A mobile-inspired consistent User Interface (UI).
