Facebook Updating Mobile News Feed, Promises Consistency With Web Version

Facebook has announced an updated News Feed on both the web and mobile devices, both of which will start pushing out today. Mobile apps will also presumably be updated in the near future.

The News Feed update is a natural progression of the current version, with a smaller sidebar, larger pictures and videos, more information on links, and a more consistent look between the web and mobile versions.

Other major differences include separate sections for interests — you can now have separate feeds based on sports, technology, politics, etc. — and a chronological Following feed that separates brands, businesses and sponsored content from friends’ posts.

The company said it would begin rolling out the web version in limited capacity today, with iOS and Android versions, as well as the mobile web, in the coming weeks. iOS would be updated first with Android coming shortly thereafter.
