Facebook to launch revamped newsfeed on March 7

  • Facebook will unveil a new look for its popular "newsfeed" next week, the company said in an emailed invitation to reporters on Friday.

    The move comes as the firm sets out to revamp elements of its 1 billion member social network.

    Facebook will reveal the makeover at a media event on March 7 at its Menlo Park, California headquarters.

    The event marks Facebook's second high-profile product launch this year, following the unveiling of its social search feature in January.

    Facebook's newsfeed, which displays a live stream of photos, videos and comments uploaded by a user's network of friends, is one of the three "pillars" of the service, along with search and user profiles, according to Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg.
