Facebook is ready with yet another announcement after the recent Graph Search launch event.
Per reports, social networking giant Facebook has just invited the press to come and have a look at a new version of the company’s News Feed at its Menlo Park, CA headquarters on March 7 at 10AM PST.
While Facebook writes on its invitation: “Come see a new look for News Feed,” the revisions to the News Feed are something that occurs pretty rarely in the company, as opposed to the social network’s more than often tests updates to its Timeline profile pages, including a recent "one column" design.
The one column design in the new Timeline was applied only recently, with the new layout sporting a single-column for all the posts and updates on the user’s Timeline, and some latest screenshots of it were also obtained by The Next Web.
“With your status updates and other posts on the right, an "About" section appears on the left with bits and pieces from your profile. The years appear all the way on a right sidebar, where you can jump to a particular year just as you're able to now,” the previous CNET report stated.
“Another image caught by TNW shows a new feature in the form of a status update, this one from BuzzFeed. Clicking on the link in the update opens the associated Web page, as always.”
However, changes to the News Feed don’t happen very often as it’s the company’s primary advertising avenue, apart from algorithmic changes and new kinds of ad content. As far as these ad contents are concerned, it was reported back in December last year that Facebook was planning to bring full video ads to users' News Feed sometime in the first half of 2013.
Moreover, Josh Constine of Tech Crunch also claimed last month to have witnessed a new version of News Feed that swapped News Feed's abundant white space for big photo tiles and overlaid text.
“Facebook also hasn't traditionally held press events at its headquarters, but counting a recent Graph Search launch event, that trend may be about to change. The Graph Search event seemed to have been planned to piggyback off CES, an event where it wasn't present, and its upcoming News Feed event coincides perfectly with the SXSW tech conference in Austin, TX — where Facebook is unlikely to announce anything,” The Verge writes.
