Facebook buys Instagram : Now the Changes Arrive!

Nathan Simon Nathan Simon Profile: Nathan Simon

We saw it coming, it was inevitable, with the purchase of Instagram by Facebook, you knew they needed something, and they got it, bigger pictures, the technology behind the photo craze…

Specifically, Facebook says photos in the news feed will now be enlarged to up to 2x their previous size, and displayed in a new layout that can bring more photos from an album into the feed. Text in news feed posts is also going to be larger and wider spaced.

At the time of the mobile redesign, we said Facebook was taking a cue from Instagram, and that the change could make browsing the mobile news feed a less tiring experience. Looks like Facebook wanted to improve the Web experience in the same way, making the news feed more of an enjoyable photo viewer on its own, rather than something that just points you to a photo album elsewhere on the site. source techcrunch.com
