In recent months, Facebook has introduced a number of user interface changes to increase declining original, organic content sharing. The social network continues to fight what it calls, “context collapse,” a decline in personal updates. Back in March the social platform launched a CTA or call-to-action, encouraging its users with a “Try It Now” prompt.

In April, a new “Highlights From This Week” feature appeared. At this time, there is no word about these new status update background color options on the official blog.

Just last week, the company introduced Facebook Live closed captions for increased accessibility. The social network continues to dominate its competition, substantially outperforming its rivals in market share and new users.
