Facebook was working on the redesign of the desktop version of Facebook.com for quite some time. It started rolling out the new design to the majority of its users in March. Only users who opted to browse Facebook.com on the new interface were provided with the new design. Facebook now states that all its users across the globe will get access to it. The company announced that its new desktop design is now available worldwide. The new design comes with a much-awaited feature of dark mode. In addition to this, the look of the new design is entirely different from the previous one. It comes with streamlined navigation and reduced clutter on the homepage. Facebook boasts the new version to be faster than the previous one. The interface is claimed to be easier to use as well.
Apart from the dark mode, there are many improvements done to the homepage. The new layout features a smoother News Feed and provides ample space on both the left and right columns. More icons are added to the menu bar with increased size. It is now easier to navigate to your favorite videos, pages, messenger, and settings.
