In the month of September, our beloved old classic Facebook design will disappear, and will no longer be available. Around the third week of August, a Facebook support page got the design.
Last year, Mark Zuckerberg first showed off the new look of Facebook.com, the new design was announced at Facebook’s developer conference. Facebook initially rolled out on the service’s iOS and Android apps.
While many Facebook profiles were asked to test/enter the new design around March on desktop as an opt-in feature, and it became the new default for all web design since May, but users could opt-out anyways.
Although you can temporarily switch back to the old interface on Facebook’s site, allowing you to freely continue using the old design, the button warns that “the classic Facebook will no longer be available starting in September.”
Disappearing in September, actually means that Facebook’s iconic blue navigation bar at the top will be gone for good. As the old design will be going, the new design will be ushering itself in.
Aside from the blue navigation, the new design comes with other important features updates, services groups features, links to Facebook’s Watch, Marketplace, and Gaming sections in its top navigation bar.
However, with the new Facebook new design, there’s a dark mode for everyone, and there’s a sharp and cleaner interface, and a lot more white space. Well, most of the redesign is still more appreciable for those that are still the platform.
