Facebook is about to roll out some major design changes in its “classic” interface with the iconic blue navigation bar at the top. Reportedly, the Facebook support page was recently updated that says that all the users will soon see a new design.
If you are too attached to the old interface, you can switch back to using it, but only temporarily. The button warns that “the classic Facebook will no longer be available starting in September.”
The new design was announced last year at Facebook’s developer conference. It rolled out on the iOS and Android apps, and, in March, was made available for desktops as well. Back then, the new design was introduced as an opt-in feature and users could easily go back to their beloved classic experience if they wanted to. However, that would no longer be the case.
The new interface is a big leap from Facebook’s age-old interface. It provides a lot of white space, thus giving it a cleaner look. It also has a dark-mode which has become a thing of need lately.
Overall, one can say that it was a much-needed update with regard to the old grandma look Facebook has had since forever. Although it is doubtful that the makeover might drag any customer traffic it has lost over the last few years.
