It is really helpful to Facebook users to stop unwanted content from their wall. Let me explain you the new introduced changes and features in Facebook.
Top News and Recent Stories
When you enter into your Facebook account you can switch between Top News and Recent stories in order to find interesting updates from your friends. Now Facebook has moved the recent stories to above your Facebook chat and when you close the Facebook chat bar it will move near to you wall. Also one important thing in this recent stories bar is you can view brief description of the update, you can like, comment, etc. This feature is very similar to Google+ notifications.

When you add an album to your Facebook account, three random photos from the album will be displayed in landscape format in your wall. Today Facebook has modified the album display in your wall. Photos are looking enlarged and the album format is quite similar to Google plus. There will be one big random photo from your album and two small photos arranged portrait towards the right side of that big photo as shown in the screenshot below.
