Facebook starts rolling out New Interface for its Mobile App

After releasing several updates to Instagram including support for running upto 10 accounts simultaneously and a new way to Draft Posts, Facebook has now started rolling out a brand new interface with several visual changes for its Mobile App.

The new changes include: Redesigned icons on the top or bottom bar, New Search interface, New Tabs, New Profile View, Redesigned Options in Facebook Watch, and a new option to “Manage Posts” in bulk. These new visual changes have been spotted by the Redfruit Media Vice President Pururaj Dutta on the Facebook App for Mobile.

Let’s discuss in detail about these New UI changes:

1. Redesign icons on the Top/Bottom bar: Facebook is updating the icons on top/bottom bar for them to have more details & color. The ‘Home’ icon has now been replaced with an icon that better represents the ‘News Feed’, and a splash of color has been added to the other icons, similar to the web version.


2. New Search Interface: The Search Interface has been revamped with updates to recently visited profiles. As you search for more people, the profiles are arranged in rows under ‘Recent Visits’. A new ‘Just for you’ section has also been added with relevant search topics.

6. New ‘Manage Posts’ option in Profile: The ‘Manage Posts’ allows users to select multiple posts for one action, such as ‘Delete Posts’, ‘Remove Tags’, and ‘Hide from Timeline’. Although the latter two aren’t working for multiple posts as of now.
