Facebook aims to axe the clutter with new News Feed design
Moving menus around and switching up the location of common features throws people off and leaves them disoriented, like walking off a wild roller coaster ride in the digital sphere.
Next thing you know, some users create a petition, pleading for Facebook to put things back to how it used to be.
So as Facebook slowly rolls out a redesigned News Feed to the masses, one can’t help but wonder if they listened to the people before changing things up on their audience?
Facebook says it consulted real users – going as far as printing out physical copies of content – so that it could understand what people wanted with the redesign. And that input has helped shape what you see now as the new News feed.
