Facebook To Showcase New Newsfeed On Thursday

Facebook is holding a press event next Thursday at its Menlo Park, California headquarters. We’ll be there live blogging the event at 10 Pacific/1 Eastern.

The purpose of the event is to showcase a new look for Facebook’s newsfeed. This may be both for mobile and the PC.

According to an earlier article on TechCrunch (discussing mobile), the look of the new feed will be bolder and bigger, with new navigation:

The news feed of the evolved Facebook app I’ve seen creates separate feeds for a few different content types including news and photos. Users navigate between them by swiping sideways on a photo that serves as a header tile filling the top quarter or so of a portrait layout iPhone screen. Below the header is a larger body tile that takes up most of the rest of the screen. From what I saw, it shows one story at a time, with text and who posted it laid on top of a full-screen image.

We’ll see, and we’ll be there to bring it to you live.

Postscript: Apparently, a Timeline redesign may be part of the announcements on Thursday. The following image is from a story on Mashable based on a new version of Timeline being tested in New Zealand. There’s also some new sharing functionality integrated into Timeline reportedly.
