Facebook to launch a new version for it’s desktop users

It also shares various design attributes with the Facebook app for mobile. There are three main improvements: Dark Mode, finding things faster and easier management of pages, groups and events. "It's faster, easier to use, and gives your eyes a break with Dark Mode". That said, it's been created to make the whole viewing experience easier on your eyes, which it does, once you manage to get used to it. The new design brings a Dark Mode toggle that lets you switch to the greyscale look whenever you prefer. Plenty of apps have already implemented a dark mode option (see our how to turn on Instagram's Dark Mode and how to activate Slack's Dark Mode), so without a dark mode, Facebook desktop felt a little, well, stuck in the dark ages. In the post, Facebook said the new design makes it easier to find features such as Games, Videos and Groups.

The new Facebook.com is simpler and easier to use, with the features you know and love. Additionally, screen glare on low light scenarios has also been taken care of here, irrespective of your surroundings. We'd recently focused on the experience of mobile Facebook and realized that our desktop site had fallen behind.

Past year at its annual F8 developer conference (remember the conferences?), Facebook unveiled a new design for its desktop website.

The design has been simplified along with the new look of Facebook, and this automatically means faster loading for pages. The pages will also load faster than before. The Facebook users can Preview a new Group they are starting in real time and see what it looks like on mobile before they finally create it. Therefore, the social network Facebook has over 2.6 billion monthly active users for the first quarter of the current year. With all that said, would you be interested in switching on dark mode for Facebook on your desktop? According to Facebook, the new changes it has introduced are a great new foundation of Facebook for desktop for the upcoming decades. To disable it, users can return and hit "Switch to Classic Facebook".
