Zuckerberg gives a first look at redesigned Facebook desktop and mobile apps

Tech Industry
In history of Facebook there has been four major versions of the product so far and this is the fifth. So we're calling this FB5 and it has much bigger focus on communities making communities as central as friends so here's a look. At what this is gonna look like. It's got a much cleaner look and feel for the app, it puts your private groups right at the center of the experience, and it's a much lighter design overall. The app isn't even blue anymore [LAUGH] [LAUGH] All right, now while we're at it. We're also rerouting the Facebook website completely from scratch and redesigning it to make it much faster and cleaner as well. This one is coming a little later this year, but here's a preview of what it's gonna look like. Now across both of this, There's a lot of new work under the hood, right? And this is more the sum of hundreds of details rather than just a few major changes. But overall, we've made it a lot easier To find and connect to the groups that you're going to be interested in much better suggestions, better browse and discover tools. There's a new groups tab that puts all of your communities in one place. Overall, basically now everywhere where you're going to be able to see and connect with your friends, you're also going to be able to see and connect with Groups that you care about. And it all adds up to this feeling that groups are now at the heart of the experience just as much as your friends and family are. Now, while we're doing this, we are very focused on safety here across groups. And while we're recommending groups for people to join, we're very focused on making sure that our recommendations and discovery surfaces. Aren't highlighting groups where people are repeatedly sharing misinformation or harmful content. And we're working hard to completely remove groups if they exist primarily to violate our policies or do things that are dangerous. So that's just been a very big focus for us here Now there's also a lot more to communities than just groups. There are lots of different ways to interact with the people in the communities that you care about, a lot of them are private, around events, around games, around dating, or other ways to meet new people. There's a lot more to FB five and Fiji is going to come out a bit later to walk to you through all this in more detail. But overall, you know, this is the biggest change to the Facebook app and website that we have made in the last five years. Since we made the whole thing native and a lot faster. It's a symbol of this year. We're not just updating the look and feel, we're also updating the Facebook icon. Refreshing for the first time since I can remember to make it a bit more lively and modern. There we go and I'm excited to get the of your hands, we're shipping this today and [APPLAUSE] So we're gonna start rolling it out and, [BLANK_AUDIO] Everyone in the US is gonna be able to get it today and a couple of other places. And we're gonna roll it out across the rest of the world over the coming weeks as well.
