We’re Updating Our Look

Clicking on “Learn More” takes users to a page in Facebook’s Help Center, which reads:

Why does my News Feed look different?

Facebook is rolling out a new design based on feedback we’ve gotten. We’re using elements people like, including larger stories and a new font, and brought them to the updated design.
