- Fresh Gear March 6
A year after Facebook announced sweeping changes to its News Feed, users' homepages will finally receive a facelift. The first reiteration, which included huge pictures and a revamped navigation bar, was only rolled out to a fraction of its users, but everybody hated it.

Basically what you see in the app is what you're going to get on the desktop. But the redesign wasn't all free Philz coffee and trips to the candy shop.
