Facebook today announced a new version “designed to reduce clutter and focus more on stories from the people you care about.”

Users will see all the stories featured in their News Feed before, but with a new look. The company has completely rebuilt each story to be “much more vibrant and colorful and highlight the content that your friends are sharing.” Photos, news articles, maps and events “all look brighter and more beautiful,” according to Facebook.

To make sure users see all the stories their want to see, Facebook is introducing several new feeds to explore in addition to the same News Feed offered today:

- All Friends – a feed that shows you everything your friends are sharing
Photos – a feed with nothing but photos from your friends and the Pages you like
Music – a feed with posts about the music you listen to
Following – a feed with the latest news from the Pages you like and the people you follow

With the new design, now Facebook has the same look and feel on mobile, tablet and web. For example, the left-hand menu is accessible anywhere you go on Facebook. You also have a way to jump right to the top of News Feed whenever new stories come in.

Facebook will be rolling out the new design slowly over the coming weeks on web and mobile. User who would like to get it early can visit www.facebook.com/newsfeed and add their names to the waiting list.

These design updates will be available on your iPhone and iPad in the coming weeks and to Android sometime after Facebook is able to sift through all of the fragmentation. Have a nice wait, Andy. Play with your malware in the meantime, sucker.
