Facebook is planning to implement a makeover for its news feed section by Friday this week. According to reports, Facebook has already sent invites to the press regarding its big press event on March 7 in the U.S.
Part of the upcoming changes in the news feed include a much improved music feed which not only shows users what their friends are listening to, but also shows information about nearby concerts, updates from artists and upcoming albums and singles.
Images on will also play a big part in the update, specifically the inclusion of a photos feed which displays larger images and the ability to go full screen. It would also appear that Facebook’s recent acquisition of Atlas – an advertising platform previously owned by Microsoft would come into play in this update as rumors suggest that ads will also become larger and more prominent with the new news feed.
The update is schedule to roll out first on the website on March 7th (U.S. time) with the mobile apps soon to follow.
So what do you think? Do we really need a new Facebook news feed given the last UI update we saw from the site received a lot of negative comments from users?
