Facebook’s new news feed layout – blue triangles and live feeds

Facebook have released an updated news feed layout this morning. The two big changes are the introduction of “Top stories” (a selection of stories Facebook thinks you’d be most interested in, marked with a small blue triangle in the top left) and a live feed of what your friends are doing.

As with any change to the way Facebook works, it’s generating some interesting chatter on Twitter:

The live feed, where you can see an instant feed of what your friends are up to, is generating some mixed responses too:

But as with any update to Facebook, it’s likely that we’ll all get used to it soon as this person agrees:
