Facebook to unveil major redesign this week

Facebook is planning to unveil a new redesign at the f8 developers conference this Thursday, reports Mashable

The new user profile design will affect the over 750 million users signed on to the popular social media platform. 

Apparently, the new design will focus on the following points: Making the site more "sticky", i.e. getting users to stay on the site longer, and allowing your friends to see what media you've been consuming. For example, if you watch a Lady Gaga video on Vevo or Spotify, friends may see this whether you post about it or not.
