Facebook will be holding an event on March 7th to show off its redesigned news feed for the web and mobile, something that has been a long time coming. The last significant design change to the Facebook news feed was in mid-2012.

According to Techcrunch, the updated mobile news feed, which will likely come to iOS, Android and the mobile web, will feature larger high-definition photos overlaid by text. Think a combination of Google+ and Flipboard.

While it may not be hugely consequential to you or me, a Facebook news feed redesign affects the most-used app on the two most popular smartphone operating systems.

The event starts at 1PM EST/10am PST on Thursday, March 7th.

    I can’t wait for the day Facebook becomes irrelevant.

    Larger photos. Wonderful. How about making the rest of the app not suck?

    How about fixing the stability of the app on Android first. It lags bigtime on my Nexus 4 and sometime you have to force quit the app and reload it just to get the newsfeed to show up…

    What ever happened about that Facebook Phone? Did they realize that they should build a good stable app before trying to build phones?

    FIX THE ANDROID NOTIFICATION! EVEN THE MESSAGE APP DOESN”T WORK

    Like it or not, world + dog uses Facebook, and some subset of world + dog will continue to use it.

    As much as I like G+, the reality is maybe ten people that I know are there, vs a couple hundred on FB.

    I can’t understand why FB can’t create an app that isn’t horribly bad. How hard can it be?

    Beyond that the best entertainment on FB are the extreme negative comments that follow any spam from McDonalds or Walmart. Like THOUSANDS of them!

    I wonder if they will be able to figure out how to sort by most recent. I see posts from days ago show up before one that was posted an hour ago even though there was no activity in the old post.

    How about they make a windows phone and blackberry app. Seems like a few million users should be worth half a dozen developers.
