Facebook unveiled the latest iteration of News Feed today, the first reimagining of the product since its debut in 2011. According to Mark Zuckerberg, the goal is to build a “personalized newspaper” that provides users with a more vibrant look into their network, keeping them engaged longer on the site.

The flexible new design lowers Facebook’s signal-to-noise ratio by introducing multiple feeds, highlighted by bigger images that call to mind popular features of Instagram. Designed with mobile in mind, the News Feed promises a consistent experience, no matter what device is used to access the site.
