Facebook Goes For A Newspaper Feel
Facebook Goes For A Newspaper Feel

Facebook unveiled its new look on Thursday, on the launch the social network’s CEO March Zuckerberg said their aim was to make the new news feed appear more like a personalized magazine or a newspaper.

In the new facebook feed pictures will appear bigger; it was also revealed that with bigger pictures come bigger advertisements. Meaning the ads will be as big as your personal pictures.

'Our mission is to make the world more open and connected,' said Zuckerberg at the launch.

'Newsfeed is one of the most important services we build, and we want to give people around the world the best personalized news.'

According to Robyn Morris designer for facebook ads, they didn’t really think about integrating ads. Their sole intention was to make the content bigger may it be from a friend, musician or a brand.

'The adverts will be bigger and richer, along with everything else.' He said.

Julie Zhuo, Facebook's director of design, said the firm was 'putting these pictures front and centre - they are more immersive.'

She said the new designed was similar to a magazine table of contents.

'The new newsfeed is richer, simpler more beautiful newsfeed or desktop and mobile,' she said.
