John Costine of Techcrunch.com reports that Facebook recently announced "plans to launch new ways to filter the news feed." The report noted: "These include a Photos feed of Facebook and Instagram photos, as well as a revamped Music feed of what friends are listening to, concerts, and new albums, according to multiple sources both within and close to Facebook. Larger images and image-based ads in the web and mobile feeds are coming. too."
Costine explained: "Why is Facebook adding new streams? Because we are information junkies. Give us a feed and we'll read it. But when we scroll so far we hit re-runs-we hit the road.
