Without a doubt, not everybody will like the new Facebook interface. Since it’s a newly added design, you can expect that it’ll come with some issues.

In case you don’t like the new Facebook interface, here are a few steps that can help you switch back to the Classic Facebook design.

  • Go to the top right corner of your page and tap on the circle where your image profile is located.

  • In case you also want to disable the dark mode feature, you should check for the dark mode button and toggle it off.

After that, you might want to give some feedback to help Facebook get better with the new feature. While doing that, Facebook will request for your comment and ask you to rate its Beta update on a scale of 1 to 5. Furthermore, it’ll also ask you while you’re switching back to the classic mode by providing you with the following options:

  • Too slow to load
  • Missing feature
  • Don’t like the look
  • Difficult to learn
  • Too hard to use
  • Can’t find things
  • Other

As soon as you submit your feedback, you’ll be able to switch back to the classic Facebook design.
