One service, many devices

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.

Photos are now a lot larger

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.

Bigger is the new better

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.

Bigger previews, sharing

Shared items from third parties are now larger, and show you head shots of friends and other Facebook users who interacted with that same content.

More information on posts

The bigger-is-better mentality carries over to locations now, so if you've tagged a place or a location in a post, the post will include a map.

Bigger third-party posts

If you're sharing something from a third-party service, including Pinterest, those items now get more of a presence, Facebook says. Seen here, some things pinned from Pinterest.

New look for 'most shared' story clusters

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.

One menu, many devices

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.

That same menu minimized

Here's the same menu when it's minimized.

Some small tweaks

A new notification, which is the same across all devices, will pop up when there are new posts -- something designed both as an alert, as well as to keep you reading.
