1. Facebook and Instagram improve readability with redesign

Facebook wants to improve the legibility and engagement in its app, and to do so it is rolling out an updated look that strips down the noise, adds more white to the background, makes profile pictures circular instead of square, and makes it easier for users to see where to click and comment.

Like Facebook, Instagram will also receive a facelift, including threaded comment reels that allow users to have sub conversations.

Facebook comments will take on Messenger's look, with bubbles replacing the existing thread look, and the platform's feedback and navigation buttons will be bigger and easier to recognize.

Check out the entire redesign to see what to expect, and what you might need to update!
