After much complaining, Facebook has decided to return News Feeds back to the way they were.
Facebook has just announced a new design for users News Feeds, the new design however, will actually be a return to the old design that it seems everyone loved.
“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. 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. The current design on mobile remains the same,” read an official blog post by Facebook.
Many users complained about the large ads, the newspaper style layout on the latest update and it seems that Facebook is working to rectify this.
“Our goal was to retain the parts that users really liked about the redesign such as the modernized look and feel and consistency with mobile stories, and remove the parts that people found disruptive, such as changing the navigation,” said a Facebook spokesperson.
The new design will now offer, bigger photos, a new font and less in-your-face ads.
“We ran multiple tests to understand which parts of the current feed and the redesign people liked and did not like and created a best of version that we’re rolling out to everyone,” concluded the spokesperson.
