Why you'll love (or hate) Facebook's redesigned News Feed

Why you'll love (or hate) Facebook's redesigned News Feed

You probably wouldn't recognize the original Facebook layout and newsfeed. The social media site has changed so much since 2004, often trying to improve upon or tweak features of rival social media platforms. Their latest app, Lifestage, is like Snapchat for high school kids and their Messenger app allows people to text and video call friends for free like Skype.

Right now they're steadily rolling out a new change that looks like another very popular social media site.

Some Android users have seen changes to their newsfeed that make it look more similar to Twitter. "What friends are talking about" is the name of the feature and it puts together a list of posts and displays them in a box at the top of the feed. Like Twitter, the posts from people you interact with the most show up first.

This new layout encourages people to use the site for talking instead of stalking. Some people use Facebook only to look around at what's going on with other people's lives; they don't actually interact with their friends. The new feed could reshape friends' posts as conversation starters because you can view several posts without having to scroll.

You don't have to be too worried if you're not a fan of Twitter. It seems that below the "What friends are talking about" box, your newsfeed will appear as it normally does.
