Facebook releases new update focusing on groups

Local News

Facebook is getting a makeover.

The company’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, giving a sneak peek of the site’s redesigned Facebook app and desktop version. It puts private groups in the center of the page.

More than 400 million users are in groups or Facebook pages meant to bring people with similar ideas together.

Zuckerberg says the redesign is set up to make it as easy to connect with groups as with individual friends.

The redesigned mobile app went live for US users yesterday. The desktop version is coming later this year.
