Facebook News Feed Redesign
Facebook announced on Tuesday that they are redesigning their newsfeeds, focusing on what people actually want to see on the platform: events and groups. This is exciting news for all the members of “secret” groups on Facebook that have recently become increasingly popular.
Facebook has reported that there are tens of millions of active groups on the platform. They shared that when people find the right one, it often becomes the most meaningful part of how they engage, and today, more than 400 million people on Facebook belong to a group that they find meaningful. The social media giant has already begun to roll out on the mobile app and will continue to come for the upcoming months.
Additionally, Facebook launched a new “Meet New Friends” section to help connect strangers into real-world connections (similar to Bumble or Tinder). They have come late to the real-world connections game but seeing as they are the most popular social networking site worldwide, we can’t help but think this will be very successful.
