Facebook App gets a Makeover

Facebook is set to overhaul its signature app to make posts and comments more legible on mobile.

I can see clearly now

Facebook’s new design is focused on making it more apparent as to where threads begin and end, while Instagram is getting comments reels to allow for sub-conversations.

Drawing from Messenger, Facebook is embracing the bubble text layout to make threading and speedy conversation more apparent to users, such as pop-up messages when in app or online.

Toning down the peripheral

Navigation icons (Like, Comment, Share, etc.) will no longer be opaque solids but rather line-drawn in a bid to take less attention away from the content.

Soon the classic globe icon will be replaced by a bell alert to reduce the visual distraction from what’s being posted.

You may see a little less blue as the classic white-on-royal back button becomes replaced by a black arrow on white landscape.

The new look is expected to rollout for Android and iOS over the coming weeks.

Are you ready for a refined look? Have you found issues with the old interface? Let us know in our comments section.
