The new Facebook is here, but not everyone likes it. We show you how to turn it off

Has become. Finally, I got a new look for the desktop version of Facebook. My first reaction was sincere amusement and laughter out loud. The second desire to restore the old version. I will tell you how to do it, it's very easy.

Facebook is in the process of implementing a new version of its desktop mobile application. It is to be functionally and visually more consistent with the version for mobile devices. Greater emphasis is to be placed on Groups and Events, less on the actual stream of news. Profiles have also been refreshed, player sections have been highlighted, and dark theme interface support has been introduced.

So much theory. What about practice? Colleague Karol has already had the opportunity to test the new version of Facebook in January - I encourage you to read his material in which he carefully looks at every novelty. Some even make sense. However, I was greeted by such a screen:

Sorry, but I laughed. This is a screenshot from my notebook equipped with a 13.9-inch display working at a resolution of 3000 x 2000 pixels with scaling set to 200 percent. The new Facebook managed to fit Relationships and half of the post with such a large workspace. This is unacceptable.

How do you turn off the new Facebook and return to the old look? Can it be done permanently?

Fortunately, restoring Facebook to its old form is very easy for now. Just click on the drop-down menu in the upper right corner, marked with something like a triangular down arrow - shown in the screenshot below.

Then, as you probably already guessed, just select the Switch to classic Facebook option. And now, return to normalcy. Not that I would subjectively consider classic Facebook as a model of order and readability - but at least there is much more content on the screen.

Unfortunately, it should be assumed that freedom of choice will not last forever. If the new look does not meet with very strong opposition from users, then over time it will cease to be an option - and the only available view. Well, maybe it's good: I will be discouraged, I use Facebook even less, and less time allocated to social media means more attention to other, more interesting things.
