New Facebook Desktop Redesign Starts Rolling Out

Facebook is allowing certain group of its users to test its new desktop experience but, it comes with an option to revert back to the current version. Included users see a pop-up that invites them to participate in the test of “The New Facebook.”

The latest iteration of Facebook for the web features a more sparse background and sports brighter colors. It reportedly even comes with a dark mode background.

Anyone who accepts the invitation and participates in the test can send feedback to the social network, in order to help it fix bugs. Of course, people within the test are split as to its new look. Some like the new interface and its functionality while others do not.

Facebook is expected to roll its desktop redesign out more widely sometime before or during the spring.
