How The Globe and Mail’s homepage has changed Add to ...

When you visit The Globe and Mail online, you’ll notice some changes. The main homepage has some new elements, and there are some more subtle innovations on our mobile homepage.

We’ve made these changes to better showcase the breadth of our journalism in all formats, including video, commentary and subscriber-only analysis. The new format highlights the things our audience finds most engaging and creates a unified experience whether you’re coming to us from a desktop computer, a laptop, a tablet or a smartphone.

Changes on the main homepage:

  • On the left side, you’ll find the most important and notable news and reported analysis of the moment.
  • Our most visually compelling stories will centre the top of the page. Here, you’ll find our best photo, video and interactive journalism, as well as news features with a strong visual anchor.
  • Down the middle of the page, we’re showcasing opinions and perspectives from our most thoughtful and thought-provoking voices.
  • You’ll find our latest and best video in the Must Watch section on the right-hand side.
  • A new section, In the Know, features articles that are personally relevant to our readers – including investing tips, health advice, film reviews, real-estate trends, pop-culture tidbits and automotive news.

Changes on smartphones and tablets:

• The Globe Voices section of opinion and point-of-view analysis will be more carefully curated to ensure our best material is easy to find.

• There’s a new section called In the Know. Just like on the main homepage, it features feature articles that are personally relevant to our readers – including investing tips, health advice, film reviews, real-estate trends, pop-culture tidbits and automotive news.

We hope you enjoy the changes and we’d love to hear what future improvements we could make to the homepage.
