On 7th March 2013, Facebook make an announcement that they will be changing the newsfeed of your Facebook account to see a bigger image and with more color. Quoting from “Facebook about newsfeed page (https://www.facebook.com/about/newsfeed), the new Newsfeed will be Bursting With Color, Vibrant new visuals bring your News Feed to life.”
When I study the new Newsfeed, I cannot agree more that it has its good side.
(1) It looks nicer, brighter and definitely more colorful because of the bigger size of the image in the feed.(2) The new Newsfeed will now look consistent in the various device you use to access Facebook, regardless whether it is a desktop, tablet or a smart phone.
(3) Business fanpage can now through the use of images and the full size cover photo to their advantage to attract more people to LIKE their page.(see below)
If the above are the good points, then, what is the bad side of the new Newsfeed, you may be asking. For me, I feel that because of the bigger images, and the screen size of our notebook, tablets and smart phone is limited, there will only be one or two news we will be able to see on the newsfeed at any time. If we want to see more news, we will have to start scrolling down to see the rest of the newsfeed. Because of this limitation, I feel that for post on Business Fan page, it is now more critical if you are posting photos in your post, you need to reduce the text with the photos so your image and text will appear together on the screen.
