Greetings Travellers!! I'm sure most of you are familiar with a little site called Facebook. Well if you are familiar with it then you should prepare yourself for a major change in the way Facebook looks. It has been reported that the upcoming change will be the biggest change Facebook has ever undergone since its inception. According to reports from Los Angeles Times Facebook is about to undergo some serious massive redesigning. Mark Zuckerberg hasn't said too much about how the changes will look but he did give us a hint in a January earnings call when he said, according to the New York Times

"Advertisers want really rich things like big pictures or videos, and we haven’t provided those things historically," he said.


So it looks as though the changes are going to be a lot about making Ads bigger but the Los Angeles Times reports that rumor has it the "high-stakes" redesign will give users alternate ways to view their friends' activities, like specifically viewing photos that were recently shared. Currently, the News Feed only allows two views: Top Stories and Most Recent. The Los Angeles Times echoes the New York Times' expectations, reporting that "splashier" photos and video will be introduced. The goal seems to be two-fold: Keep users hooked, and boost ad revenue. Says an analyst: "Allowing feed customization provides Facebook with more information about what users find relevant, allowing better targeting for advertisers, [which] translates to overall higher revenue and profits for Facebook."

If the description of the new Facebook design reported by the NYT and LAT isn't sounding like gibberish to you then i'm assuming you are very psyched right now. I personally can't wait to see the changes.

Anyway, don't forget to like our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter and on Google plus. You can do so my clicking the stuff at the bottom of the display. My name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
