In addition to the standard news feed, Facebook also introduced new feeds.
The "All Friends" feed hows you everything your friends are sharing. "Photos" is a feed with nothing but photos from your friends and the Pages you like. "Music " is a a feed with posts about the music you listen to and finally the "Following" is a feed with the latest news from the Pages you like and the people you follow.
With the new design, now Facebook has the same look and feel on mobile, tablet and web. For example, the left-hand menu is accessible anywhere you go on Facebook. This contains app bookmarks, links to specific friends, the chat and calendar tools, and the live updates ticker.
You also have a way to jump right to the top of News Feed whenever new stories come in.
Another tweak involves auto-generating maps to accompany posts about specific locations. This may encourage more members to use the mobile app's GPS-powered check-in function which competes with Foursquare.
Facebook will be rolling out the new design over the coming weeks on web and mobile. These design updates will be available on your iPhone and iPad in the coming weeks and to Android soon after.
One consequence of the change is that adverts can take up more screen space, making them harder to ignore.
