Facebook is rolling out a slight redesign to the News Feed today, which overhauls the main interface of the site for a cleaner look. What that actually translates to in practical terms is getting rid of the blue accents and headers across most of the interface, which the company claims will make navigating easier and more consistent.
The other big change is that comment threads on posts are getting a new design to make them look more like message conversations — specifically, Facebook Messenger conversations. So instead of comments being broken up by simple line breaks, each comment now gets its own gray message bubble, with the goal of making it easier to track who is replying in a given thread.
Lastly, profile pictures will be taking a page from Twitter’s book and shifting from squares to circles, and icons, Like, comment, and share buttons are getting new, simpler and larger designs to be easier to tap on a touchscreen.
