Facebook is Redesigning the Top Bar (And it Looks Pretty Classy)

Facebook is working on redesigning the top bar, aligning the white/grey look and feel to Messenger's recent redesignRecently, Facebook gave messenger a big redesign that made the messaging platform seem a lot more sleek and modern. The more streamlined appearance was fairly well received which is quite surprising when you consider just how hostile the denizens of the internet can be whenever something changes. It seems like the Messenger redesign was part of Facebook’s attempts at a wider redesign, one that would bring both Facebook as well as Facebook Messenger into the same overall aesthetic territory.

Facebook seems to be starting out with the top bar. The icons are changing and becoming the rounder and somewhat daintier versions that we have already seen on Messenger. That’s not all, the color scheme is becoming a little more subtle as well, something that would bring the app closer to what the Messenger redesign has defined as Facebook’s future aesthetic trajectory.

The white and grey color scheme is a bit different from the shades of blue that Facebook has traditionally been known for, but sometimes change is good. In this case the change has been so subtle over an extended period of time that people have barely noticed, but it seems like Facebook is trying to outgrow its past which is understandable when you consider the fact that it faced a lot of problems last year after a series of cyber attacks left its level of security regarding user data under intense scrutiny.

Facebook is testing out a bunch of other features as well, including the dating menu that it is currently testing internally. These new features plot a pretty cool trajectory for the social media platform over the course of 2019, and it will be exciting to see what else comes up after the testing period is over.
