    Also, any interest lists you've created in the past.
  • Paul Sloan 3/7/2013 6:25:32 PM
    This is interesting. There is much confusion currently about who sees what -- especially for brands posting to their pages.
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:25:54 PM
    Making sure you have the same experience on mobile.
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:26:05 PM
    Chris Cox to talk about mobile consistency.

    The Web experience inspired by mobile designs.
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:26:53 PM
    Pulling back the chrome so there's more room for content.
  • Smerkle 3/7/2013 6:26:57 PM
    Does this mean the end of Edgerank?

    Tablet and phone navigation hasn't changed much, but the deskstop version has taken a page from the mobile devices.
  • Josh Miller 3/7/2013 6:27:35 PM
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:27:47 PM
    Global navigation -- go through one page to another without having to go back to the homepage
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:28:02 PM
    The new design gives people have a tray to see who is online and chat with those people.
  • Josh Miller 3/7/2013 6:28:25 PM
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:28:29 PM
    Talking about consistency again -- for publishers and brands to think about how their content will look across all screens.
  • Paul Sloan 3/7/2013 6:28:32 PM
    @smerkle Good question. EdgeRank is Facebook's black box algorithm that determines who sees what. Sounds like it will play a different role for sure

    Cox says redesigned chat bar means we're going to start hearing from people with "old PCs" that "we haven't heard from in a while." I consider that a threat, because I really don't want to hear from my Aunt Linda right now.
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:29:12 PM
    He found on the phone he was having quicker access to check on friends really quick, but on desktop you spend more time looking at different content.

  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:29:35 PM
    Brought over the bubble notification to the Web experience.
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:30:07 PM
    Recap: richer story design, different cuts in the feed and overall consistency, he said.
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:30:09 PM
    Limited rollout today
  • Josh Miller 3/7/2013 6:30:12 PM
  • Josh Miller 3/7/2013 6:30:28 PM
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:30:41 PM
    We're going to be very very careful and slow about how we roll it out.
  • Josh Miller 3/7/2013 6:31:00 PM
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:31:02 PM
    People may start seeing it in the next few weeks.
  • Josh Miller 3/7/2013 6:31:23 PM
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:31:27 PM
    That's a wrap.
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:31:38 PM
    Taking questions now.
  • nafiz 3/7/2013 6:31:53 PM
    when r we going to get the new look in ASIA?
  • Casey Newton 3/7/2013 6:31:56 PM
    The chill music returns!!
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:32:08 PM
    How will new design impact ads?
  • Josh Miller 3/7/2013 6:32:09 PM
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:32:34 PM
    Making it richer and more immerse like everything else, Julie says.
  • Casey Newton 3/7/2013 6:32:42 PM
    So the end of the presentation showed a URL -- facebook.com/newsfeed -- that is not working right now.
  • Paul Sloan 3/7/2013 6:32:44 PM
    Well, that was that. No details about who will see the new design when, just that the rollout is gradual. It's hard to evaluate all this until we play with it.
  • Josh Miller 3/7/2013 6:32:48 PM
  • Casey Newton 3/7/2013 6:32:52 PM
    Doesn't look like a way to opt in at the moment.
  • Josh Miller 3/7/2013 6:33:30 PM
  • Luke 3/7/2013 6:33:36 PM
    I've been working on a social network as a school project, and the design I made a year ago looks quite similar to what Facebook has shown off today :(
  • Kamran Mackey 3/7/2013 6:33:37 PM
    @CaseyNewton They have to make it live. It may take a few minutes.
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:33:51 PM
    Question about edgerank. Facebook says they aren't changing anything about the ranking algorithm.
