Facebook has rollout a new look for its News Feed which was announced last year but never launched.

According to Techcrunch, the changes are all visual: a new font for the bulk of the text (Helvetica for Macs and Arial for PCs); a new “card” arrangement; bolder presentation for images; and a lighter and more simplified left- hand column — changes that will give the desktop experience more parity with Facebook’s mobile apps.

The changes are getting turned on over the next few weeks worldwide.

Will It Affect The Adverts On Facebook?

None of the changes affect advertising on the site, or how Facebook surfaces content to people. That is, in other words if you are a marketer on the social network, you don’t change anything.
On that front, there will continue to be updates to the news feed algorithm over time.

Marra says that Facebook wanted to take some time to really think them through.
“Over the last year we have been taking time and listening to what people think about the redesign, lots of interviews with users to understand what parts were working and what parts were not. Some changes were getting in the way of using Facebook.”
