The new Facebook for the web has a dark mode feature

Facebook has launched several features in the web version of the app. This includes a dark mode for eye-care. Facebook made this and other announcements this month. The company, in the 2019 F8 event, announced its plan to work on Facebook for a desktop experience.  

For many years the tech-focused entity had worked on several features on its mobile experience so as to beat the competition with other social media companies. After announcing its plan to improve the web experience for desktop users, the company had asked a series of questions, doing research to know ways in which to improve the web version. 

Early this year, Facebook had test-run the new features with a small group of desktop users. However, the company says it is launching these features worldwide this month. 

One of the new features that caught my interest is the dark mode. Users can switch from grey light to dark mode by clicking on the drop-down arrow at the top right of the home page. Then navigate down to turn on Dark Mode view. Facebook believes that this view is better for watching your favorite movies. 

Another interesting feature in the new Facebook for the web is the new way to create groups, manage pages and events. You can seamlessly create ads or a group and have a feel of it on both mobile and web in real-time before going live. 

Lastly, Facebook made new streamlined navigation in which users can easily search for a thing on the web application. Desktop users can readily navigate the page to search for games, videos, and groups as it is done on mobile devices. 

Facebook shares were up by 1.09 percent yesterday to close at 212.35 US Dollars. The company is experiencing a surge in its shares and shows a measure of disrespect to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic.
