business news in context, analysis with attitude

Facebook yesterday announced what is being termed "a substantial redesign of its News feed," a makeover that the New York Times writes is "a makeover aimed at both keeping users glued to the social network and luring more advertising dollars."

Wired writes that the goal is to create a kind of "personalized newspaper ... like a newspaper, the new News Feed has a prominent, bold front page and is divided into a host of new sections, showcased in a menu in the top-right corner of the screen."

"The overhaul," Wired writes, "is designed to get people to interact more frequently with the News Feed, the stream of status updates and other information that greets each user upon login."
