Facebook is about to change it up again, and I’m sure there will be the inevitable posts from people wanting it to go back to the way it was. Most of the time I LOVE when things get updated. I feel like it makes it more modern and I feel like I’ve got the latest technology!
There are several new features heading Facebook’s way. What are the key ones you will actually be excited about?
Facebook is claiming that you will be able to find the things you love faster and easier with new streamlined navigation. The screenshot looks like it will emulate the mobile version of the app. This gives you large buttons at the top of the screen that allows you to quickly jump from groups to your feed and more.
Cleaner With Bigger Text
The new profile pages look a lot cleaner too. Currently, your Facebook profile page is a little messy. Cleaner is definitely the way of the future. I love that they are simplifying the pages to let you focus on what you really care about… you know, stalking that ex of yours.
As we stare at computers and screens more and more every day, our eyes are definitely getting the short end of the stick. Many people are opting to use dark mode to help ease the strain on their eyes. With the new update of Facebook.com, you will have the option to browse the site in dark mode!
Full-Screen Photos and Videos
Finally, Facebook is updating its photo and video viewer with interactive features allowing you to comment and react to the video or photo through messenger or directly on the item’s feed. This should allow them to become more interactive when browsing on the web.
With all these changes, brace yourself for the complaints and of course the chain letter posts that state with these changes Facebook is going to release all of your data and kill your firstborn. I promise… they will come.
