Last year, Facebook promised us that a new design for the desktop version of the site would be coming at some stage, and now a very small percentage can see the new design live. The new look is a lot less cluttered, more space is given back and brighter colours are used all round.
CNET reported recently about “The New Facebook” – which is what the redesign is being called should be available to all users before the spring this year, and users who have been selected to test will see a pop up to try the new site, something Microsoft does from time to time with Outlook for the web. If you don’t like the look of the bright white background, there is the option to change it to a dark-mode.
Those users who are testing it can submit feedback directly back to Facebook to report any janky user interface issues or bugs.
