The Trending Dark Mode feature
Due to dark modes having a huge trend in the past year, Facebook has decided to offer its own dark mode for web users in this update. You will be able to reduce eye strain by turning on in The New Facebook.
How to get The New Facebook now

But a “small percentage” of Facebook desktop users are reportedly now getting a pop-up alert inviting them to help test The New Facebook.”
If you sign in to the Facebook website from your browser and receive this alert, you’ll need to consent to the trial. Facebook will then switch on the interface update and let you choose between a white background with bright icons or a dark mode. Facebook is also reportedly offering you the option to switch back to the old Facebook design at any time.
You’ll be able to provide feedback on the new look, as well.
