Facebook’s desktop website is getting a visual overhaul that almost everyone can access. Update to this brand new, less cluttered design with the click of a button. But don’t worry, if you don’t like the change, you switch back to the classic interface if you want to keep the social media you know.
How to Enable Facebook’s New Interface
Head on over to Facebook’s desktop website on your computer and log in to your account.
Next, click on the down arrow in the top-right corner of the interface and then select the “Switch To New Facebook” option. The page will refresh and the new interface design will load.
A welcome message will appear the first time that you switch to the New Facebook design. The social network claims that the redesign allows for faster loading time, cleaner look, and bigger text. Additionally, Facebook now includes a dark mode that you can enable whenever you want to give your eyes a break.
Additionally, this update to Facebook’s interface also comes with a user-friendly redesign of the Groups tab and a comprehensive overhaul of the News Feed.
Click the “Next” button to proceed.
Before jumping into the new interface, you’ll be able to choose between the traditional Light mode or switch to the new Dark mode. Select whichever option you like and then click the “Get Started” button.
Don’t worry, if you aren’t a fan of the Dark mode, you can switch back to Light whenever you like.
How to Switch Back to Facebook’s Old Interface
Once you’ve enabled the new interface, you can always revert the change from your Facebook account’s front page. To do this, click on the down arrow in the top-right and then select “Switch To Classic Facebook.”
There may come a point in the future that Facebook decides to roll the new design out to everyone. When that time comes, you will likely not be allowed to revert to the old interface.
