Facebook's new look is similar on PCs, smartphones, and tablets. The company says it wants everything to be consistent, so users don't feel lost, or wind up with missing features when jumping from platform to platform.
That big photo you shared used to look small on the News Feed. Facebook's changed that. Photos are now considerably larger, and associated options, such as liking and sharing, are gathered together in one module.
As part of the change, Facebook is enlarging things you see on the feed, so they're easier to spot. This includes videos, which get larger thumbnail player windows, as well as bigger photo icons that show you who liked or shared a post.
Facebook also changed the way the "most shared" stories for a person or page are displayed, with bigger previews, and info underneath. The social network said it really wants the whole experience to feel more like a personalized newspaper.
The new menu on the desktop side is a carryover from what Facebook has been using on mobile devices for a while now. The company says it wants to make sure people can find the same menu item or shortcut they're used to, no matter where they're accessing the service from.
