Facebook 'Feeds' Invade: Friends + Photos + Music

By Oonagh Reidy | Thursday | 07/03/2013

Forget one newsfeed - Facebook is now bombarding us with multiples - All Friends, Photos, Music AND Following.


Yes folks, the network with 1 billion members is taking the "clutter" out of its newsfeed by giving us more content to "drill into."

Newsfeeds should have "high-quality public content and socially relevant content, and to drill into any topic," Facebook said as it announced it makeover of its biggest social tool.

Wow.

Here's a breakdown of the four:

- All Friends - everything your friends are sharing/doing

- Photos - Friends photos and Pages you like

- Music - posts about the music you listen to

- Following - latest news from 'Liked' Pages, media, people/companies you follow.

The change was announced at a press event in Facebook HQ in Menlo Park, California, overnight.

"We want more than a single feed of content," said Mark Zuckerberg.

Facebook's hooded CEO also went on to compare the social network feeds to a 'newspaper': "We want to give everyone in the world the best newspaper we can," Zucks declared.

All posted media articles will include the logos of publishers, and Facie is also giving third party apps like Pinterest more prominence.

Half of the social networks' newsfeed posts are now photos and 25% are public post.

The music newsfeed in particular will appeal to Gen Y - the primary Facebook user - and will feature 'tons' of music, says Zuck & Co.



But hold on, the Newsfeed will still be the main event but info will be more honed down than previously, and gives you "Rich stories, visual and engaging. Your choice of different feeds, dig into any topic that you want. And a mobile inspired consistent UI" says Zucks.

The cleaner feeds, which now have the same look as per Facebooks' iPhone app and will be the same across tablets and PCs, is a clear nod to the mobile Facebook user.

The changes have been likened to rival Google+.

And if you're thinking more newsfeed, more ads, you could be right although The Social Network hopes ads will be more relevant than prior.

"We've completely rebuilt each story to be much more vibrant and colorful and highlight the content that your friends are sharing," the network said in a statement

"Photos, news articles, maps and events all look brighter and more beautiful."

The changes are being rolled out from today, but if you'd like to get it early, visit www.facebook.com/newsfeed and add yourself to the waiting list.

The design updates will be available on the iPhone and iPad in the coming weeks and to Android soon after.

LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
