March 07, 2013|By Salvador Rodriguez

In a video posted Thursday, Facebook explains that its renovated News Feed is intended to clean up the site's design.

The new version of the feature has bigger picture thumbnails, shows larger maps when friends check in and shows larger previews for articles users share.

Facebook has also introduced a feed switch, so users can toggle between the type of content that they want to look at. This includes photo feeds, music feeds, all friends feeds and others.

"By providing these different feeds, that really empowers people to see the things they care about most," a Facebook employee says in the YouTube video.

In pictures and on video, the new design looks clean, but will users embrace it? We'll discuss this at 2:30 p.m.
