Facebook works on a new timeline design ("News" in Spanish) that will include a organization in three tabs. One of them is dedicated to the content that Facebook considers most relevant, another to organize the publications in chronological order and the last one to collect posts that we saw previously.
Actually, these three options are already available on Facebook, and the novelty is that they will be more visible thanks to the tabs that will be added to the mobile application. For now the function is not finished, but we can already get an idea of its operation.
Thanks to Jane Manchun Wong, an engineer who has leaked many new features by analyzing the internal code of the apps, we have images of the Facebook redesign:
At least if Facebook does not change its plans, these are the three tabs that will appear in the News section of your app for Android and iOS:
- Relevant: what the Facebook algorithm thinks we are interested in, according to our use of the app.
- Recent: Recent publications are prioritized, although the algorithm does not consider them so relevant.
- Viewed: content that we have seen in the past, and that in this pestaa be easier to locate again.
By default, what first that we appear in the app be the relevant content Facebook chooses, but it is easier to switch to other pestaas. Now that the new Facebook design is reaching everyone it seems that the social network wants to continue with the improvements in its interface.
One of the big problems of Facebook is how complex it can be to locate all your mens and options. Add these tabs, even if you reload the interface, provide a better organization, especially when it comes to finding an old publication, something that is currently complicated.
As always in these cases, we cannot assume that the tab interface ends up being officially launched. Facebook is very likely to test its news with small groups of users before deciding if a function is worthwhile.
Although Facebook works on projects as large as its own operating system, the small tweaks in the social network are also important, and the new tabs of Facebook facilitate the use of the mobile app, especially for the less technology experts.

What do you think about Facebook posts being classified as pestaas? Do you think they provide order, or that they recharge the interface too much?
