Facebook Gets New Design and the Dark Mode on Desktop

After announcing a new design for the web version of Facebook, the company has now started to implement the highly-awaited dark mode.

Most of the platform’s users will now be able to navigate on a redesigned desktop that the company revealed during its F8 conference in 2019. As per a report by TechCrunch, the new desktop design packs a clean profile, tabbed home screen and dark mode. The social media giant will implement the new change as default sometime this year. Still, users can use it before as well, the report stated.

In addition, a streamlined navigation system is also expected in the new desktop adjustment that will have the Marketplace, Groups, Watch, and other functionalities on top of the screen. The loading speed between transition and home page will also be quick, with the new change showing more sensible layouts and a larger front, according to the report.

Facebook Has a Redesigned Interface

The social media giant is also making it easier to create Events, Pages, Groups, and ads, allowing users to see a preview of that these look like on mobile phones before they are shared. The Group and Events functionalities are important for Facebook, with 400 million and 700 million active users per month, respectively.

The best change, however, is the dark mode, which is designed in such a way that it decreases screen glare while maintaining the contrast, so it is more comfortable for your eyes in a dim environment.

The dark mode can be accessed from the page’s settings, as well as the new redesign. To activate the new look, go to the ‘Settings’ menu and tap on ‘See New Facebook.’ To disable the option, simply click on the ‘Switch to Classic Facebook’ option.

The company has started testing the new design in October of last year. The dark mode feature has also been implemented on the Facebook-owned messaging platform WhatsApp, as well as on Instagram.
