Changes are coming yet again for the social network as Facebook unveiled a new layout today.

Company chairman and C.E.O Mark Zuckerberg debuted the radical new design of the site's news feed. 
    
With the new look, Facebook's 1 billion users can customize their news feed to articles, posts and images that are of most interest to them. The upgraded feeds feature larger photos and videos and will retain the same look whether accessed on a computer, smart phone or tablet. 

Zuckerberg said the news feed will have a newspaper mentality.

"It should have a front page news section of top things going on, and let you drill down into any topic you want," Zuckerberg said.

Photos will be much bigger and have their own dedicated feed.  
    
The new feed also provides Facebook with more users data, allowing better targeting for advertisers, something the company has struggled with.
     
The redesigned feed will start rolling out to a small number of people on the web today and will show up on phones and tablets over the next few weeks.
