The design will be available for desktop and mobile platforms in the coming weeks
Facebook is giving the News Feed a
in the coming weeks, allowing users to see exactly what they want to see.
The News Feed redesign focuses on categorizing information and allowing users to see what's most important to them. For instance, if someone wants to see posts that are only music-related, there's a filter for that.
The new look will have four filters: All Friends, which is a feed that shows everything that friends are sharing; Photos, which is a feed with nothing except photos posted; Music, which is a feed more music-related posts only, and Following, which is a feed that shows posts from people you follow and pages you like.
The design will be available for desktop and mobile platforms in the coming weeks. As far as mobile goes, the iPhone and iPad will receive the facelift before Android devices.
Check out this video for more information on the redesign:

They haven't improved anything they just made it bigger! OK so they did let you sort your "news feed" I will let them call that an improvement.
But back to the bigger. Bigger is what american companies do when they run out of ideas.
Our car companies. "People want trucks but they aren't buying of ours anymore. Make them bigger then everyone will want one!"
Fast food. "We have to compete with the other guys. I known give them a 55 gallon drum for a drink and 5 pounds of fries and while were at it make the hamburger out of ammonia processed scraps that we buy for 10 cents a pound and make the burger huge!"
Our houses. "I am 23 years old and my parents live in a 1500 square foot house that they finaly paid for after 30 years. I want my house to be 5000 square feet! With marble everything! And a maid and a gardener and a pool boy! Yea I know I don't have a job but I deserve it and I saw it on MTV!"

Trucks aside, your pretty much right. I dont know if you have spent very much time around american trucks, but they havent gotten any bigger... Same with cars.
The reason being, cars got a bit smaller during the last oil crisis a few decades ago and have since returned to their former size. Just put a 76 chevy next to a 2012 chevy, aint a huge difference.
You could say the new trucks have gotten "fatter", since the bodies are taller(they actually just come down farther) and imho a bit uglier and less useful due to less ground clearance.
As far as food though, I think I would agree, same with the 23ish year old kids today. Sadly, I am in that age group. Though I definitely do not fit that stereo type.

I forgot to mention, Toyota is actually the company who has fallen victim to the "make it bigger" mentality. My dad used to have a '86 Toyota pickup, tiny little thing and fun to drive. Nowadays, even the Tacoma is bigger than a Ford Ranger, with which it kind of used to compete. They are actually about the size of the original Tundra/T100. And Tundras, are now the same size as "full-size" American pick-ups.
"We are going to continue to work with them to make sure they understand the reality of the Internet. A lot of these people don't have Ph.Ds, and they don't have a degree in computer science." -- RIM co-CEO Michael Lazaridis
