Facebook unveiled a new News Feed design Thursday, saying the social network will now emphasize visual content.

Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg presented the new design, saying it is a mobile-inspired design that will be consistent with the news feed found on Facebook's mobile app.

Zuckerberg and Facebook's Julie Zhou, director of design, said the new layout will put photos and visuals front and center.

Zuckerberg said the change comes as a result of photos now making up nearly 50% of all posts on users' news feeds.

"News Feed has become primarily about visual content," Zuckerberg said.

Zuckerberg said Facebook wants its news feed to provide users with "the best personalized newspaper we can."
