Facebook News Feed Changed: Layout Redesigned, Becomes More Compact

March 31, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

Facebook has changed its news feed layout for some users, starting Monday.

It appears that the design was rolled out earlier this month.

A number of people weren‘t happy with the change. 

“Facebook changed its layout on me im v disoriented,” wrote one person on Twitter. 

“Urgh, Facebook changed it’s look,” one wrote.

Added another: “Facebook u changed your look more times than Madonna not that we don’t like change, u decide 2 increase ad dimension 5 pixels for no reason.”

“My facebook just changed… and it looks like an app stretched across my screen.. ugh,” added another.

Facebook has yet to comment on the change on the Newsroom section of its website.

“In a never-ending bid to make its news feed easier to use, Facebook has changed its look yet again. For one thing, the font will now be in Helvetica for Macs and Arial for PCs, which will make it look a lot like the fonts already in use elsewhere on your computer. Further, different shared stories will no longer have indentations when a friend leaves a comment, and will instead be separated out into its own post for the sake of a less messy interface,” Endgadget wrote of the changes a few weeks ago.

“The left-hand column, previously cluttered with icons, is now much lighter and cleaner. Lastly, shared photos will now be in full-width, while multiple photos will be presented in a collage. The roll out begins today, so keep hitting refresh — hopefully you’ll get to see it before Facebook’s next round of redesigns,” it says.
