Notice something new about Facebook?
Overall, the big changes to the Facebook platform are not going over well with users, and they're being pretty vocal about their discontent. Did we really expect anything less from those of us who started out with America Online and dial-up?
Facebook has finally forced me to upgrade to the new version and, I must say, I ain't loving it! I'm finding it quite glitchy. Anyone else having issues or is it just old dinosaurs like me...🦖#NewFacebook #WhyWhy #NoLikey pic.twitter.com/zWvD3inUUQ— Karen Twomey (@comm_hub) September 7, 2020
On paper, the changes are more cosmetic than anything else. Icons are across the top instead of off to the side. Users are also reporting glitches in the functionality, not just the confusing new look.
There's a new dark mode with a grey background, supposedly to help with eye strain. This applies to Instagram as well.
For now, it looks like users can still switch back to the "old Facebook" layout, but that may not last forever. This new version is here to stay. Does anyone else feel like newer isn't always better?
With a little bit of searching, you'll find that all of the things you love about Facebook are still there ... they just may be in a different place. Read more about the changes and how they affect you here.
