Facebook’s recently unveiled redesign will boast a News Feed dedicated solely to music. The revamping is part of Facebook’s aim to make the default landing page less cluttered and allow for greater personalisation over what articles appear in the user’s News Feed.
With that in mind, Facebook have introduced a list of specific feeds, each of which is dedicated to a specific subject. In the promotional video (embedded below) you can clearly see a new tab titled ‘Music’. As reported by Billboard, the Music tab will cater to artists, bands and music services like Spotify.
Facebook’s Chris Struhar, who is the technical leader for latest redesign, said music was not only an important component of Facebook but also an important part of daily life, and therefore relevant to all Facebook users:
“Music is something that really resonates with all of us. So we’re really excited to get this feed out in front of people.”
There’s much more to the new Facebook design than just music. The new design will also see Facebook acquire “universal functionality”, meaning the user has the same experience on their mobile as they would on their desktop. Check out the videos below to get an idea of what you can expect in the next phase of Facebook.
For your chance to try the new design before it’s official release you can sign up to the official waiting list.
