Facebook event scheduled for March 7, News Feed redesign imminent

What's this we have here? It looks to be an invitation from Facebook telling us to "come see a new look for News Feed." The event will take place next week on March 7 at 10 am PT. As for what the social network has in mind for the day's events, we're pretty adamant that they'll be introducing yet another new redesign of the front-page News Feed.

The last time Facebook held an event actually wasn't too long ago. About a month and a half ago, Facebook showed off their new Graph Search feature that's currently rolling out to users as we speak. Now, the company is back for more, and it looks like they're going to be giving their front page a little bit of a face lift.

However, as for what to expect with a News Feed redesign, we're not really sure. It could be something that integrates better with Graph Search, but Facebook hasn't been focusing too much on its News Feed, so it'll be interesting to see what they come up with. The company has mostly been focusing its efforts on Timeline profile pages recently.

Of course, just yesterday Facebook announces that it would be acquiring Microsoft's Atlas ad server in order to give marketers and advertisers better tools for managing and tracking their ads on Facebook. We doubt that next week's event will have anything to do with Atlas, but we wouldn't be surprised if Zuckerberg brought it up on stage. Stay tuned!
