For quite a while now, Facebook had announced the new template which is meant to replace the olden blue and white template which some users have been accustomed to after a really long time.
While there is the opportunity to actually swap the theme out for the new one but will never be the case anylonger moving forward as from next month whereby every one will be forced to migrate to the new look which also sports a dark mode that I actually like.
While the new look had been optional as well as not for all regions around the world, the company posted on its support page that this will be available for everyone starting from September which might not be a good news for those who aren’t sed to the new look.
Personally I found it cool when colleague Ret SILO did a short tutorial on how to switch to it. The classic blue and white user interface had been Facebook’s iconic identity for many years and that’s what people knew the company with but the move away to the more flatter user interface can be attributed to modern design aesthetics which different companies are now adopting.
Users feedback will be taken about the new look so Facebook will be able to make some tweaks to the user interface as time gets by. The new Facebook look had initially been unveiled by the company’s CEO back in F8 2019 which was focused on the Facebook mobile app before it then turned the attention to the desktop version.
Dark mode is almost everywhere now (even Brumpost has Dark mode which had been here since forever) which allows users to turn off the aggressive light mode to a much more eye-friendly dark mode especially when you’re in a darkened room.
I’ve been using the dark mode since I migrated to it and the clean look is what I like about it. The introduction of Groups, Marketplace, Watch and other simplified tabs for faster navigation is one other thing people might quickly get used to when they finally make the switch.
Facebook has also made it easier to create Events, Pages, Groups, and more on the home page – and users are able to see a preview of how these will look on mobile.
