Why The New Interface

Basically, everybody around the globe wants to embrace some kind of change and Facebook is also meant to change in the near future. It is something that happens everywhere. LOL…. Just saying what I think.

This is the main reasons why.

  1. To provide easy navigation around the entire site and your personal dashboard.
  2. To provide awesome experience without causing harm to your eyes. That is the reason for the Dark theme and larger font sizes than the usual.
  3. To increase the loading speed of the website as whole and trust me, it is more faster than the usual speed.

As you can see, there are so many changes in the look of the page. The search box is smaller and all of the many bulky icons and texts on the ribbon have now been categorized under menus, making it neat and clean.

Pages, groups, saved items and others are categorized in the left pane neatly and colourful. The middle is your timeline as usual and the right pane shows notifications and chat list as usual. It is very simple to hide and start chats with this new interface.

How To Switch To New Facebook Interface

You can easily switch to the new interface by clicking the dropdown arrow at the top-right corner on the menus bar and select “Switch to New Facebook” from the dropdown list.
