Facebook announced a fresh new design for Facebook. This new design makes the Facebook experience simpler, faster, and puts communities at the center. Facebook has also made it easier to find the most commonly used features and more.
The design features rounded corners and is more colorful than the current design of desktop Facebook. Text appears larger and there is more grayspace; this may lead to extended scrolling sessions as less content is displayed at a time on the visible part of the screen.
Zooming in or out, or changing the size of the browser window may help display more content on the screen at the same time.
The icon bar at the top provides quick access to various sections on the site including the homepage, videos, marketplace, groups, and gaming.
The new design looks like this when you open a Facebook Page.
Notice that Facebook displays a two column design when the browser width is too small. Which column it displays depends on the page you are on. If you are browsing your home feed, you get to see the feed and the right column with its contacts.
A click on the new menu icon (three horizontal bars) displays the links of the missing left sidebar.
How to activate your facebook to new version
To turn on the new design, go to the Settings menu and choose the option that says “see new Facebook.” .
Now You Can Switch between light and dark mode
Steps to make Facebook Dark mode
Toggle Dark Mode which is displayed in the menu as an option.
The change is instant and the page is either displayed using a dark color scheme or a light one depending on the state of the Dark Mode switch.
How to go back to Classic Facebook
Facebook users who have tried the new design of the site already may want to go back to the classic version; this is possible currently but it is very likely that Facebook will remove that option eventually from the site.
To restore classic Facebook, do the following:
Select Menu (a click or tap on the profile icon in the top right corner). Note that Facebook changed the design recently, you may need to click on the down-arrow icon instead to display the menu.
There you should see a “Switch to Classic Facebook” option. Activate that to go back.
