Facebook said almost a year ago that it was working on a new, redesigned home page for the web but it didn’t say when that would be made available to users.

Now we know that the social network intends for “The New Facebook” to be available this spring. The interface will be a cleaner, quicker one that will hope to do away with some of the clutter Facebook has become known for.

While Facebook says that a “small percentage” of users now have access to the new interface, the widespread release won’t be available until this spring. There’s still a chance that you’ll be chosen to see the new design before then, but we probably wouldn’t suggest holding out too much hope there.

All being well everyone should have the new interface by March 19th, assuming Facebook hits its deadline. Part of the redesign will include a new dark mode for those who prefer things to look a little stealthy. We don’t know whether that will be an option within the Facebook settings, or if it will honor Windows and macOS dark mode themes, however.

No matter whether you’re using the light or dark theme you should see much less of that blue and white theme Facebook is so famous for, though. The company is trying to revamp itself, presumably to escape some of the many controversies it’s endured in recent years.
