Confirmed: New Facebook design coming soon!
Everyone brace themselves! There is a NEW design and layout coming to Facebook super soon.
As someone who has been using Facebook since 2008 (yes, when you had to have an invitation), I have seen a lot of new Facebook designs. Without a doubt, people rant and rave about the new design but mostly there is a lot of ranting.
Bottom line is that people don’t like change. However, now that Facebook is 16 years old and 2.5 billion users on the platform, I am hoping that people are much more open to the new design and layout in 2020.
The new update includes:
- Dark mode
- Cleaner look & bigger text
- Better layout to find things faster
Here is a look at my desktop screen with the new layout:
One of the things that I noticed almost instantly was the ad on the right side of the screen. I almost never paid attention that ad placement but the ad is more noticeable (to me).
I totally LOVE the dark mode but I have noticed in some instances it’s hard to read the text so hopefully they adjust the font a little bit.
The shortcuts are easier such as the top navigation above the news feed.
The new Facebook design is still in beta mode so I am sure they will add more updates and make a couple of adjustments. Be sure to connect with me on social media and let me know if you have the new layout or let me know what you think.
