If there has been anything constant with Facebook, it is undoubtedly ‘change’. This time again, the popular social networking site has made some significant changes to its Privacy Settings, Mobile App, and News Feed.  Here’s a deeper look into all of its major updates:


News Feed

Facebook recently made some changes in its News Feed in order to make the interface look the same on desktop and mobile devices. However, the biggest change that has appeared is the modified News Feed now allows for bigger image sizes. This is a significant change, especially for e-commerce traders as it allows them to display bigger product images than in the past. Besides this, changes have also been made in cleaning up your News Feed by cracking down on three types of posts, including like-baiting, often circulated photos and videos, and spam links.


In-App Messaging

According to the recent changes made by Facebook, you will soon require to download two distinct apps to chat with friends. This is because Facebook is now planning to kill the messaging feature in its iOS and Android apps, and instead ask users to download Messenger in order to chat with friends.


Although the requirement of a separate Messenger will affect maximum Facebook mobile app users, yet the change is not applicable for users having lower-end Android devices with memory limitations. This means that these users would still be able to chat in-app. Also, the Facebook’s iPad app is not affected by this change as of now.


Privacy Settings

Facebook has recently confirmed a handful of changes in relation to privacy settings as well. The company is rolling out some new features with an aim to help you understand who you are sharing content with, and how their sharing activities affect you. These features include more specific choice of selecting your audience, more visible sharing settings, ability to make cover pictures private, and more.


According to Mike Nowak, Product Manager, Facebook’s privacy team, “these changes represent a larger push from Facebook to ease concerns from users who believe the company isn’t providing the necessary privacy offerings, or that Facebook’s privacy issues change too often.”
