Besides, considering the helath of our eyesight – because the users’ comfort is one of the Facebook’s criterion, isn’t it? – Dark Mode has been introduced. Have you tried it already?

The changes of Facebook’s design doesn’t cover only an aesthetic purpose, but a practical one as well. The speed of page loading and search results is higher. And as we are already accustomed, Facebook allowed an adaption period, therefore at the launch of the new design, the users had the possibility to switch back to the old one, option that at the moment is no longer available for some accounts.


And now that is is clear why the look is important, it’s time to find out about sizes. As you know, Facebook allows content upload of different sizes. From video to photo, each post type has a certain sizes that graphic designers need to consider for a good quality of uploaded content.
