    The other real question is, when is this going to roll out to all users. Seems like New Zealand are the ones getting the updates first
  • Casey Newton 3/7/2013 6:01:59 PM
    Facebook has a notorious pro-Kiwi bias
  • Captain Slaphead 3/7/2013 6:02:05 PM
    The "Fail" poster in the background is just begging for a joke
  • Om 3/7/2013 6:02:26 PM
    Wonderful to see Namaste.......hindi on cnet!!
  • Jeremy Knight 3/7/2013 6:03:09 PM
    whens it starting
  • Casey Newton 3/7/2013 6:03:16 PM
    The million dollar question.
  • Ixan Hermogino 3/7/2013 6:03:28 PM
    FOCUS > Fail
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:03:30 PM
    Should be any minute now...
  • Paul Sloan 3/7/2013 6:03:51 PM
    Okay. Key question: What do users dislike about News Feed?
  • Casey Newton 3/7/2013 6:03:52 PM
    I posted the "Fail" comment about the "Focus" poster because it was a "Fail" showing the commenter had not "Focused." FYI.

  • Captain Slaphead 3/7/2013 6:04:30 PM
    I failed! I feel quite honoured now
  • Paul Sloan 3/7/2013 6:05:01 PM
    Is this about user improvements or play for more ads? Or can they really be one and the same?

    Here's Zuckerberg from 2Q earnings call: "We’ve told every product team that they’re responsible for the advertising experience within each of their products, so the News Feed team is coming up with better ad experiences than just being able to run kind of general ads on the side."
  • Thatface 3/7/2013 6:05:24 PM
    Probably an hour with numbers and statistics first, before the actual content i presented
  • Josh Miller 3/7/2013 6:05:31 PM
  • Casey Newton 3/7/2013 6:05:40 PM
    The News Feed just looks a little shaggy to me. Hasn't been updated in years. And with more kinds of content coming into the stream, it may make sense to introduce new tabs for music and other things.
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:05:47 PM
    Zuck's in the house!!!
  • Parth Makwana 3/7/2013 6:05:48 PM
    how long it will take to start??
    i m from india & its 11.35 PM
    should i sleep or wait for this event to start??
  • Casey Newton 3/7/2013 6:05:59 PM
    Definitely don't go to sleep. Stay up all night. This is the future we're talking about.
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:06:00 PM
    Today we're going to talk about a new design for news feed, he says
  • Justin Maslin 3/7/2013 6:06:02 PM
    I really hope its a robot that identifies spam pictures and lowers the 'weight' of the pictures that user shares in the future.
  • Paul Sloan 3/7/2013 6:06:06 PM
    Here we go
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:06:22 PM
    News feed is one of the most important services that we build
  • Josh Miller 3/7/2013 6:06:24 PM
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:06:33 PM
    it's easy to think about it as a single stream of content
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:06:44 PM
    we want to give everyone in the world a copy of the best newspaper in the world
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:06:53 PM
    a personalized newspaper
  • Josh Miller 3/7/2013 6:07:16 PM
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:07:22 PM
    He said it should give you news from everyone important to you, but it should be able to drill down into any topic you want.
  • Paul Sloan 3/7/2013 6:07:35 PM
    Zuckerberg execs have used the Newspaper analogy before. It's a theme for sure.
  • Josh Miller 3/7/2013 6:07:41 PM

    Newspapers. That takes me back.

  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:07:49 PM
    Showing an early version of news feed.
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:08:15 PM
    If you're going contribute to this personalized newspaper, you need to be able to contribute any sort of information you want.
  • Josh Miller 3/7/2013 6:08:16 PM
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:08:25 PM
    And be able to share with any audience you want.
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:08:44 PM
    The types of story you tell with a photo as oppose to words is very different.
  • Desiree DeNunzio 3/7/2013 6:08:53 PM
    Heads up: We'll stop posting the comments for now, and will resume post-game
  • Josh Miller 3/7/2013 6:09:02 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 3/7/2013 6:09:05 PM
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:09:19 PM
    He says there are a lot of great social apps that let you share specialized content with an audience, but nothing like Facebook.
  • Paul Sloan 3/7/2013 6:09:19 PM
    The key here is going to be simplicity -- people do want to customize, but they want it to be obvious. And there are always privacy concerns.
  • Josh Miller 3/7/2013 6:09:47 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 3/7/2013 6:09:47 PM
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:09:50 PM
    When they first started News Feed was mostly text. Now nearly 50 percent of content is photos.
  • Josh Miller 3/7/2013 6:10:27 PM
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:10:38 PM
    We want updates from our friends, but also news organizations and world leaders.
  • Josh Miller 3/7/2013 6:10:45 PM
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:10:59 PM
    The new design has bigger images.
  • Josh Miller 3/7/2013 6:11:06 PM
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:11:14 PM
    This design reflects the evolving face of your News Feed.
  • Josh Miller 3/7/2013 6:11:24 PM
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:11:54 PM
    Big images, content-specific feeds and mobile consistency
  • Josh Miller 3/7/2013 6:11:54 PM
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:12:08 PM
    Product design manager Julie Zhou up now.
  • Josh Miller 3/7/2013 6:12:15 PM
  • Josh Miller 3/7/2013 6:12:39 PM
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:12:53 PM
    The design is focused on the stories, she said.
  • Donna Tam 3/7/2013 6:13:10 PM
    Talking about her friend who is a talented photographer.
  • Paul Sloan 3/7/2013 6:13:11 PM
    Clutter is always the big fear. Eager to see this
