Facebook is updating its mobile app to make photos appear larger in users’ News Feeds.
The new Facebook mobile site, iOS, and Android app redesign announced roll out today that makes photos three times larger. The single photos look a lot like Instagram’s, as they appear full width so there’s less need to stop and open them. Bigger previews of photo albums will also be available to the users.
The social network announced the redesign Monday via the Facebook Mobile Page. The changes will gradually roll out to users.
Just last week, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg told investors that mobile is the company’s top priority.
“Now photos are up to (three times) larger, and all posts will fill your mobile screen from edge to edge,” Facebook wrote. “The new design will be available on iOS, Android and m.facebook.com.”
Instagram displayed photos in full-size in its mobile feed with no need to open them. Though Facebook announced it would buy Instagram for $1 billion that deal still hasn’t been made official by the Federal Trade Commission. However, it seems Facebook is wasting no time borrowing style notes from its new purchase.
Facebook, the world’s largest social network, has 901 million users.
