Classic Facebook is no more (and people aren’t happy)

Facebook unveiled a brand new interface last year and has been slowly seeding it out to users – but not without the option to revert to the classic style if preferred. According to a newly updated Facebook support page though, that's all about to change. From next month, all users are stuck with the new Facebook layout whether they like it or not (and it seems there are quite a few in the latter camp).

Announced at 2019's Facebook F8 conference, the new interface is the platform's biggest redesign in a decade. Gone is the signature blue navigation bar, in favour of a much more minimal, white design (above) – or black if you opt for the brand new dark mode. It's certainly a cleaner look, but if you're not a fan of the design, it seems Facebook's answer will soon be 'tough luck'.
