Facebook has publicly launched the new desktop website layout that it announced for Facebook.com at its annual F8 conference last year. Alongside a renovated look, it also brings performance and functionality improvements along with much requested features like dark mode support.

The new Small Facebook iconFacebook desktop website has brought a complete visual identity overhaul to the world's most popular social network. Controls and iconography have been redesigned and rearranged, with fewer words and more space between posts. This brings it in line with its mobile app for Android and iOS.

The newly renovated navigation section on the left-hand side of the new layout makes the search bar, key site subsections, and shortcuts to your most used apps and visited groups easier to access than on the old layout. On top of navigation, the creation and management of advertisements, events, groups, and pages has also been redesigned. Page creation now features real-time previewing before it's published, including the ability to see how your group or page will look on Facebook's mobile layout.

The new facebook.com is now available worldwide on any desktop web browser.
