Facebook's News Feed gets an update for easier navigation

The update will make it easier for the users to read the text in the News Feed. For instance, the comment section is being dramatically overhauled to look more like chat bubbles. The redesign of the user interface is part of Facebook's efforts in improving the app's readability and navigation. Facebook is also updating the way navigation works on the app by getting rid of the classic blue bar on its app and replacing it with a traditional back icon which is supposed to make navigation on the app less confusing and give some extra screen space to the designers. It's essentially Instagram's Boomerang feature, but in Facebook.

Facebook is also making updates to refresh the look and feel of News Feed. Profile pictures are round going forward, and not square, while link previews have become larger. From now on, users will be able to see where a link will take them, before clicking it, as well as see which posts they're commenting on or interacting with.

Shared links on the Facebook News Feed are larger, while content is easier to read.

Facebook will also debut circular profile pictures to better display user comments on a particular post. Facebook says the increased color contrast for the improved conversations design will increase readability. You can also see whose post you're commenting on, reacting to, or reading while you're in the post.

Those associations will soon change to "grey" and "circles", however, as Facebook has unveiled plans to revamp the News Feed on mobile, altering some long-running aesthetic choices in favor of the new. GIFs created on the Facebook Camera can be shared as a Story, a Direct message or as a post on the News Feed, according to 9To5Google.
