New BBC Website goes live tomorrow but you can see it now.

New BBC Website goes live tomorrow but you can see it now.

I’ve been a fan of the current BBC News website for some time. When I caught news of its upcoming changes I admittedly was anxious, but thankfully they’ve made a great site even better.

What’s new:

  • a fresh, updated design, with more space for the main stories of the day.
  • Larger, bolder text.
  • Better use of video and images
  • clearer and more prominent labelling and signposting of key stories, whether you are on the front page or a story page
  • a better indication of which are the most recent headlines
  • easier ways to share stories with others, for those who wish to

Before and after shots below, but check for yourself here – before and after. Both are still live until tomorrow when the beta site replaces the current (before) one.
