At the 2019 F8 annual conference about the future of technology, Facebook had announced that it will roll out a fresh new design for the social networking platform that’s simpler, faster and immersive as well as it puts the communities at the centre. Now, the new Facebook.com has been launched to give your eyes a break with Dark Mode.
In a blog post, Facebook stated, “We’ve grown since Facebook.com launched 16 years ago. We’ve built new features, optimized for new devices and operating systems, and expanded to hundreds of languages. Recently we’d focused on the mobile Facebook experience, and realized our desktop site had fallen behind. People need it to keep up.”
Facebook carried out on-the-ground research by spending months talking to people about how it could make the web experience better for them. Expressing excitement, Facebook asserted that “the new site is a great new foundation for the next decades of Facebook.com.”
