The desktop site of social media giant Facebook, which frequently changes something in its design, has been presented to the users of the world with its new design and dark mode.
Facebook, the pioneer of social media, started to lose its popularity over time. For this reason, the company tries to keep the user mass alive by making design changes frequently. The platform had been renewed recently.
Facebook’s renewed desktop design was previously available to certain users. With the announcement made today, it is stated that the new interface and dark mode can be used by users all over the world.
It was released in March:
The new design and dark mode originally appeared in March. This design was not open to everyone and accessible from every country at the time. The company had given many users the chance to use this new interface in March.
The blog post published by Facebook today said that the new desktop site can be experienced by everyone. In the post, it was said that this design is a faster, easier and darker design.
Although the dark mode is the highlight of the new design, there have been many innovations on the site with the update. The homepage has been made lighter and more streamlined, while the number of news and posts has been reduced. There are larger grids on the sides of the screen.
How to turn on the dark mode of Facebook?
Many people are bothered by too much light coming from the screen. Many apps have dark mode for this reason. Facebook also added dark mode to its site. Turning this mode on is pretty simple.
- Press the down arrow at the end of the top menu.
- Click Facebook’s Settings tab from the menu that appears.
- Select the “Switch to new Facebook” option.
- Press the same arrow and turn on dark mode.
Facebook announced at the F8 event in 2019 that the site will focus more on events, private groups, and messaging, the most used features. Facebook has lost a significant number of users in recent years.
