Dark modes have become more and more popular over the years. A lot of people find that it is less strain on the eyes and easier to read white text on a black background. Many social networks have chosen blue and white as their primary colour schemes and have been reluctant to add optional dark modes partly because it dilutes their branding.
Facebook, however, has now added an optional dark mode. This guide will walk you through the process of enabling dark mode on Facebook.
Enabling dark mode in Facebook is really simple, just click the down arrow in the top-right corner of the page to open the Account dropdown menu. From the Account drop-down menu, just toggle the “Dark mode” slider from “Off” to “On”.
Dark mode is only available in the new Facebook design. If you’re still on the classic design, you’ll have to switch to the new design first. To do so, open the Accounts drop-down menu and click “Switch to new Facebook”.
Tip: Dark mode is not currently available on the Facebook mobile app.
