Facebook to unveil ‘new look for News Feed’ on 7 March

Facebook has sent out an invitation to the collected press, promising to unveil a new look for its News Feed on 7 March.

As is the way with these things details are scant, but if TechCrunch’s Josh Constantine is to be believed then the redesign will see the social giant revealing a news feed designed to work much better on mobile and including features such as full-screen photo tiles and text overlaid on images.

The Next Web also reckons that a more image-heavy version of News Feed, with shades of Flipboard will be the order of the day.

We’re also expecting to see the longer article previews and larger images that some users have been experiencing to become full-time additions to the feature.

Whatever happens, one things for certain. As is the case with pretty much every update, a lot of Facebook users won’t like it. Expect threats of profile deletion on your News Feed soon.
