Facebook rolled out its new interface a few weeks ago - picking random users to test it and provide feedback on their experience. One of Postfity team members got lucky and we are happy to report on the 6 major changes below 😉👇
6 Major Changes:
#1 Dark Mode
Facebook seems to have taken a leaf out of Twitter's book by offering its new interface users an optional dark mode. The reason behind it is not purely esthetic - dark screens are said to be kinder to the eyes, do not cause that much disruption to our sleeping patterns (with blue light) and...help save your laptop and phone battery ;) Here the comparison of the dark vs. light modes:[gallery columns="2" size="large" ids="https://blog.postfity.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/image-8.png|,https://blog.postfity.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/image-7.png|"]
#2 'Pick up where you left off' functionality
The new Facebook interface will allow you to 'save' the place where you last got to when scrolling - and pick up where you left off when you come back. Pretty useful if you want to react to a post or reply to a comment a bit later, but you need to go or get interrupted.
#3 'Cleaner' Interface
Generally, the new Facebook interface seems less cluttered - a lot of icons from the menu on left of the feed will disappear into 'folders':
#4 Instagram photos on pages
The new Facebook interface will also display Instagram photos on Facebook pages - from linked accounts.
#5 New Video Player
The new Facebook interface also got a larger, more YouTube-like video player:
#6 Overhauled Marketplace
The Facebook marketplace also got a face-lift, with bigger photos of products and cleaner layout:Cf. Now:
