The new Facebook design interface features three core user experience.

  1. Turn on dark mode to give your eyes a break.
  2. Catch up quickly with faster loading times.
  3. Find things easily with  a cleaner look and bigger text.

(My favorite from the core features on Facebook’ new design, is the ability to switch between dark mode, and the regular light mode.

You can read my writing, where i wrote about: Facebook new design: View all the amazing new features — there pondered, if dark screens are better than white screens, for the eyes. (Either way, the new Facebook design offers you the ability to switch, whenever you want.)

Not only is it possible, to switch back to the “classic Facebook design”, but Facebook says it will be available at “any time”

For example, after I had switched to my new Facebook design, I tried switching back — just to show you. (Here is mine)

(Oh — i’m currently rocking the dark mode of the new Facebook design — have you switched to your new design?)

It’s really user friendly, to provide the ability to switch back to the classic Facebook design.
