The social network also adds a real-time "ticker" for instant comments and replies.

Facebook has announced a number of changes to the News Feed this week, designed to keep you informed of important updates and interesting events in your friends' lives. It is becoming more like a personal newspaper, and content is adjusted depending on how frequently you visit the site.

If you haven't logged onto Facebook in a while, you'll see a summary of the top stories and photos, like the front page news, which will be marked with a blue corner. If you checked your feed only yesterday, then it will display recent news updates first and the photos will be bigger for you to enjoy while you're scrolling through.

$15 provides access to this article and every case-study, interview, and analysis piece that we publish for the next 30 days. Our Premium Subscription also provides access to a database of over 100,000 articles on innovation in brand, customer, and retail experience.
