New Facebook.com – The new Facebook design was announced at F8 last year (2019), an annual conference held by Facebook for its developers and entrepreneurs. The F8 conference is held yearly and that is the best place to get news about all Facebook’s new features and updates.
It’s been over 16 years since Facebook was born and since then it has been more like a father in social networking. By continuously working and developing updates and new features, Facebook has grown to be the most populated social media network on earth.
Facebook has one of the best user interfaces when it comes to social media, but that wasn’t enough. They needed to be the best hence a way to update its interface popped up. Facebook started its research and began sorting out those features and tools on its platform that needs some working on.
Facebook started releasing and testing its new design late last year and a lot of people have had good reviews about it. Apart from some glitches here and there, the new Facebook design is totally awesome.
New Facebook Features
It’s more like Facebook carried out surveys because they touched most things on Facebook that keeps users away from it.
One of the most annoying features on Facebook is its slow loading reflexes. Facebook totally worked on that, the new Facebook interface loads everything so fast especially on the desktop version.
Also, there is an in-app dark mode for Facebook users. Finally, Facebook heeded to our pleas, a dark mode. Almost every other social media network already got it, but our favorite, Facebook, hasn’t got it yet, Why? This question we kept asking throughout last year. Well, to answer it, Facebook now has a dark mode in the New Facebook design.
Furthermore the new Facebook screams simplicity making navigation so easy. You can create and manage groups, events, ads, and pages with unimaginable ease. You can also select and specify the kind of posts you want on your news feed.
Live streaming on Facebook just got better with its audio-only live streaming option more like you are doing a podcast on Facebook. There are a lot of new features in the new Facebook design, you just have to check it out to find out.

You might try both guides to switch to New Facebook and still not find the prompt or option to. If it makes you feel better, at first I didn’t also get the option to switch to the new Facebook, I had to wait for it a little.
