Facebook launched its redesigned website on Friday with a less crowded look and a dark mode. The company first showed off the new site design at its F8 developer conference in 2019. In fact, Facebook started testing the new feature with a small new number of users earlier this year.
The new desktop version is now available to many users worldwide. If you don’t see it yet, it should be available in the next few days.
Redesigned Facebook desktop site: what’s new?
The new design makes the desktop version similar to the mobile experience. The company says the new design makes it easier to find features like videos, games, and groups. Like the Facebook mobile app, the desktop website will load faster. The new design also makes it easy to create events, pages, groups, and ads.
Perhaps the highlight of the recently redesigned desktop experience is a new dark mode that will help reduce eye strain, text readability, and better contrast. Last month, Facebook brought dark mode to Facebook Messenger. Facebook-owned WhatsApp also got dark mode in March.

How to switch to the new Facebook website
* Go to the Facebook home page, tap the down arrow button in the upper right corner.
* Choose “Switch to new Facebook”.
* In case you want to enable dark mode, just tap the down arrow button and tap the dark mode button.
Adoption of Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram has doubled during the coronavirus pandemic. Recently, Facebook announced the first members of its new supervisory board that can override Mark Zuckerberg. The group of 20 people includes a former prime minister, a Nobel laureate and a law professor.
