7 Things to Know About the New Facebook Redesign

Facebook is about to launch a new redesign. The new design features larger images, easier access to certain feeds as well as several other additions.

At a press conference, Mark Zuckerburg stated…

We are trying to give everyone in the world the best personalized newspaper we can,” said Zuckerberg, comparing Facebook to a struggling form of old media for the first time. “We believe the best personalized newspaper should have a broad diversity of content. It should have high quality public content from world renown news sources and locally and socially relevant updates from family and friends and the people around you.”

The new Facebook design, while appealing to it’s users – is certainly being redesigned for advertisers as well.
