Facebook recently published a news post detailing the redesign of its home screen. They are saying that the redesign’s purpose is to make the look consistent on both mobile and web platforms. They initially experimented with the redesign last year, but according to people who have had the chance to test it, they liked seeing the large photos but found it difficult to navigate the website. The new design Facebook says has the best of both worlds.
Facebook says that the rollout on the design will come in a few weeks.
