The company says it is only testing GIF support at present and will evaluate how it affects the user experience before rolling out it to more Pages. Facebook has also redesigned its Notes section - a spot where users could post blog-style pieces of writing.

The redesign looks very similar to Medium, the publishing platform by Twitter co-founders Evan Williams and Biz Stone, fastcodesign.com reported. Like Medium, the new page consists of a single, large top image, and a single column of text.

Also, Facebook has changed the default font from Arial to Georgia, which is a serif font. Serif fonts are traditionally thought to be better for reading long form content. The designers were also allowed to ditch all ads and other sidebar content.

The newly designed Notes pages are being seen by a select few in their feeds now. It is not clear when the feature would be available for other users.
