The new beta interface — which is being rolled out to a select few for testing — isn’t only darker but also seems to morphing into Twitter, according to some users. Others feel that it looks more like its mobile version.


Regardless of whether or not Facebook’s new interface is mimicking Twitter, beta testers feel that it’s definitely neater.

In case the new design doesn’t look as appealing to some, it should be noted that the design is still in beta mode. This means that there may be changes to come before the final version is rolled out to the masses. Even if it doesn’t, there will be a toggle to allow users to switch back to older, or the current, Facebook interface.
