Facebook mobile app to get Instagram-like picture treatment
With more and more people accessing the web on their mobile devices, web companies strive create apps that can recreate a full web browsing experience, albeit in a simpler package. A consistent user interface across devices can drive people to use it more, which is vital for companies like Facebook, that increasingly depend on mobile ads.
The latest revision of the Facebook app for Android and iOS, as well as its mobile site, brings an improved design for the posts in news feed. Gone are the days when you had to squint your eyes to figure out the thumbnail pictures in the news feed. The photos in the feed will now show up three times bigger. Aside from that, the redesign will make the posts fill your mobile screen from edge to edge.
