Facebook has begun rolling out a redesign of its desktop site. Users have the option to opt in to the new design (or switch to the classic Facebook) which places a heavier emphasis on two of Facebook’s most critical features: events and groups. The redesign was previously exclusive to the Facebook mobile app and was first announced at the F8 developer conference last year.
Similar to the mobile app redesign last year, the new desktop layout gives you quick access to some major Facebook features and employs a cleaner, simpler design with more white space. The redesign includes larger fonts and sleeker icons, a simplified layout plus a dark mode. Facebook Stories have been moved above the “Update Status” box, while just above the “Stories” section, there’s a redesigned menu bar housing several tabs previously found in the left-hand corner of the screen, such as Groups and Events.
The most significant change in the desktop’s design is the new “Groups” tab located on the redesigned menu bar. Clicking on the tab will bring you to a personalized feed of updates from groups you are a member of while also suggesting groups for you to join based on your interests.
To can try the new design:
- Head to your Settings menu, and click “Switch to New Facebook“
To switch to classic Facebook:
- Select Menu (click on the down-arrow icon in the top right corner).
- Click “Switch to Classic Facebook” option.
