Facebook has been testing the new layout for some time now but today it will become available around the world.

The biggest changes are that Facebook will now look more simplified and there is also a dark mode for you to try.

Although the rollout to everyone starts today, changes may not be seen right away.

When the new look comes, accounts will be greeted with the message "Welcome to a fresh, simpler Facebook".

Dark mode is another quirky new feature that will be available.

The good news is that those not keen on the new look can revert to the old design, at least for now.

To do this, users can go to the downwards arrow to the upper right and then click 'Switch to classic Facebook'.

Plans for the new look were announced back in April last year and you may be surprised by the minimalism of the finished design.

Almost all of the website is now white, not blue, including the banner at the top.

This white banner holds light grey icons for News Feed, Facebook Messenger, notifications, Watch, Marketplace and Groups.

Facebook Stories has been moved to the centre of the page and are in large rectangular form rather than circles.

The social network's logo has changed so it's now a white 'F' in a bright blue circle rather than a square.

The fresh redesign didn't prove very popular on Twitter earlier in the year though.

Several unimpressed Facebook users who got the update early were voicing concerns.

One tweeted: "New Facebook desktop layout = GROSS!”

Another said: “The new facebook layout is so ugly I'm in disbelief."

The new dark mode aspect has also divided users.

Some praised it whilst others were less impressed.

In other news, an ‘iPhone Flip’ concept has revealed a 5G handset that could launch in 2021.

Google Chrome users can now make video calls directly from their browser for free.

And, a new Facebook scam reportedly enables hackers to steal $1.6million from regular users of the social network.
