Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

I Don’t See the Option for Dark Mode. What’s Happening?

It is a very common question. Where to find the dark mode feature is not obvious. That is the reason why so many Facebook users are still not aware of the dark mode feature. 

Facebook launched the dark mode feature gradually only to some devices and software. But, it is available in all devices today including the iOS (iPhone and iPad).

FIrst, make sure that your Facebook app is uploaded to the latest version. Facebook had launched a new update that contained the dark mode option. 

But what if you have the latest update but cannot find the dark mode feature? It could be that you are using an outdated web browser. Or, the web browser has not been updated, it is an old version. 

Dark mode option was initially launched for New Facebook only. So, navigate to the upper-right hand corner of the Facebook interface. There, scroll through the options. 

You will find an option for switching to New Facebook. If your browser is out  of date then you have to use New Facebook for getting the dark mode option. This feature appeared only in 2021.

Is Dark Mode Better?

Dark mode is a popular option not only in Facebook or Messenger  but also all other apps. Dark mode looks more fashionable. Dark mode relieves the eyes of excess stress. 

In these pandemic situations, phones and computers are our only means of communication. In that scenario, putting less stress on the eyes is better. 

Dark mode does not affect the melatonin level  of your body. This means it does not affect the overall health. Dark mode is the best for running any app on Android, iOS or computer. 

Then comes the battery life. We spend a lot of time on social media platforms like Facebook. Dark mode makes sure that your phone does not run out of battery every now and then in the middle of amusing gossip or news. 

But if you are a fan of the standard interface then you can always check out if dark mode works for you. If  not then revert back to the standard mode. 

My Facebook Was in Dark Mode, and Now It Isn’t. What Happened?

Sometimes, people complain that they had set their Facebook and messenger apps to dark mode but it automatically came back to the standard mode. These complaints were very widespread back in May 2021. 

It was a bug in the Facebook code. As soon as it came to the developers’ notice, they resolved the issue. 

What did the user have to do if they faced such a problem? They would just close or force close Facebook and reopen it and get the issue resolved. 

But what if you do close then reopen but the issue remains? Go to the app store to update to the latest Facebook version. The latest update is free from the glitch. 

Why Is My Facebook Background Black Now?

Dark mode feature is now available in Facebook but if you are more comfortable with the standard Facebook looks then follow these simple steps: 

  1. Go to the Settings Menu
  2. Select ”See New Facebook.” 
  3. Disable it by hitting “Switch to Classic Facebook.”
  4. The standard version comes back. 

Should I Leave My I phone on All the Time?

No, you should turn off your iPhone from time to time. This will increase the battery backup and life of your iPhone battery.
