Facebook is among the best chatting platform in the world for communicating with family and friends but is subject to constant updates. The Facebook dark mode is already here and has been launched. It is been used by Facebook users across the world. Everyone has been talking about its unique feature and catchiness.
The Facebook dark mode is the latest configuration in the Facebook UI. It is a replacement of the popular bright and white screen interface. The dark mode screen now has a dual colour — black and grey shade and can be accessed via desktop or mobile. It has been anticipated by a lot of users, although it is a very minor change.
It is a fantastic substitute for the conventional Facebook interface, although, some users are not solely basing their decision to use the dark mode on that alone. The dark mode makes for a much clearer screen for some people because of the white text on black background and research have shown that reducing blue light is great for a night of better sleep, so people actually prefer it for its convenience during the dark.
Another benefit of the Facebook dark mode is good it can do for your phone battery. Some researchers have realised that black colour consumes less battery power than white pixel colours, especially in devices that use AMOLED screens. So it is in the best interest of phone users to use the Facebook dark mode, it can help the battery power stay for longer and you wouldn’t need to charge it all the time.
You should not forget that the Facebook dark mode may still undergo an upgrade depending on the response to it. For instance, the WhatsApp dark mode has been tweaked a little because of the reviews of users. So Facebook dark mode may still be upgraded, just as the Whatsapp dark mode.
Let’s show you how to turn on the Facebook dark mode in any device, whether mobile or desktop.
With that in mind, here’s how to experience the dark side of Facebook on desktop and mobile devices.
