INTRO: Earlier this year, Facebook revamped its interface on the online with a serious redesign. The redesign added a dark mode and made the general experience better with bigger fonts. The social media giant is now ready to discontinue the classic Facebook user interface UI this September.
Facebook first announced the new Facebook UI in May last year at its F8 developer conference. The company started testing the UI in beta last October, followed by a wider rollout this might.
Until now, Facebook provided its users with the choice to settle on between the classic UI and therefore the modern UI. With this alteration, users will haven’t any choice aside from getting won’t to the redesigned website (or delete Facebook).
“We’ve made improvements to the new Facebook.com and we’re excited for everybody to experience the New Look. Before we make the classic Facebook unavailable in September, we hope that you’ll allow us to skills we will still make Facebook better for everybody,” reads a pop-up on Facebook.
In addition, the corporate is seeking feedback from Facebook users who are switching to classic UI from the newer version. “Before the new Facebook.com becomes the default experience, we would like to find out more about how we will improve,” wrote Facebook.
Although a particular date isn’t known yet, the transition will happen sometime in September. If you’re a Facebook user, you ought to probably switch to the new UI if you don’t want to be forced to try to so.
That said, if you’re someone who started using Facebook before it became too mainstream, you ought to consider spending the upcoming weeks on the classic Facebook interface since you’ll not be seeing it again, except in screenshots.
