As noted by Mark Tonkelowitz on Facebook blog that day, the news feed will act more like a personal newspaper and the ‘top stories’ will be highlighted in the homepage.

“When you visit Facebook, you should see the things you’re most interested in, like status updates from your family and closest friends.” Tonkelowitz wrote on Facebook.

“Starting today, it will be easier to keep up with the people in your life no matter how frequently or infrequently you’re on Facebook.” Tonkelowitz added.

As earlier reported, Facebook introduced the Subscribe button where users can get updates from people they are not friends with such as journalists, artists, celebrities, political figures, among others.

Meanwhile, Facebook emphasized that all the news will now be in a single stream with the most ‘interesting stories’ featured on top of the page, with photos now noticeably bigger.

Unlike before, updates slide down in chronological order in which Facebook claims to be tough for users to choose what matters most and what should appear first.

In addition, a live ticker will be introduced and will show what you’re friends are currently talking about and users will be able to join the conversation right away.

Apparently, the recent Facebook changes received a lot of mixed reactions with some observers saying that it is a great improvement while others claimed that it was not helpful at all.
