New Facebook design to be launched next week

A new Facebook design which has been gradually tested and rolled out in some areas will become permanent in the UK from next week.

The new design has been shown to some users since May, featuring a minimalist layout and a change in colour-scheme.

The top of the website has been changed from blue to white, and includes light grey icons for the News Feed, Facebook Messenger, notifications, Watch, Marketplace and Groups, reports The Mirror.

Facebook’s logo has also been changed, with the letter ‘F’ now in a brighter and lighter blue circle.



And while Facebook Stories used to appear on the right of the page, these have now been moved to the middle, and are represented by rectangles rather than circles.

There is also a dark mode so users can see Facebook in black and grey.

The new design is here to stay from September 1.
