Facebook: the biggest redesign in recent years
Adapting to the needs of its target audience, and to attract young audiences back to the platform, Facebook presents a series of changes that promise to make noise. These can be defined as the largest redesign of the social network in recent years.
Do you want to know what Mark Zuckerberg is up to? In one of his most recent conferences, the creator of the network pointed out which would be the main changes of the platform, which were initially applied in the United States and around this time begin to be visualized for users in Latin America.
The predominant blue color in the design that we all recognize when we think about Facebook will disappear to give space to white. The central idea is to offer the user a cleaner and clearer space, without too much information.
With this goal in mind, the elements are further separated, creating a free design.
Emphasis on groups and events
Innovative at first but now obsolete, Facebook groups and events will be the main beneficiaries of this change.
Focusing on the fact that 400 million users of this network belong to at least one group, Facebook designers have decided to emphasize these communities. From now on, they will offer group chats, more possibilities of relating to other users, and publishing options without revealing identity (for example, in self-help groups).
The events will be renewed hand in hand with geolocation, allowing users to observe them on a map with nearby activities.
New technology to combat new crimes
After the world-renowned scandals associated with the platform, Zuckerberg promises to go beyond a simple new design to offer new security settings that make Facebook a more secure network.
Recently, the company announced the launch of new technologies dedicated to detecting photographs deemed unsafe or unsuitable for the network, and thus eliminate them. In this way, it will be possible to eliminate abusive content and identify similar images that do not comply with the rules of the network.
Will these be the last changes? Everything seems to indicate that Facebook's fight to regain lost ground to other networks is just beginning, and that users should expect more than one surprise in the coming months.
