    Interesting read about how the new format, and Facebook in general, is designed to thwart good quality engagement rather than aid it

    As for the new layout, is this the one they introduced a couple of months ago, or are they doing something even newer/worse?

    I'm currently using it in dark mode on safari.
    I only got it last week, though it might be different people got it different times?

    FWIW the phone version is actually really good.

    I always use it off my phone but did try to use on the PC recently and it was appalling! I completely agree that they have bastardised it

    Dark mode is a big improvement.

    Not really noticed any other issues with it.. Except... I'm sure I don't always get notifications now (checked the settings for various groups and they are still set to notify).

    I think I may have to do the same. Shame as I actually use it for proper conversations and can't be doing with a phone screen for typing

    Adblock has been helpful though. Hid some parts of the page entirely

    I've already attacked it with AdBlock to remove the pointless "stories" top-bar that was eating 20% of the space, but I seem to recall there are ways to monkey with individual sites/pages?
    Not sure if this is worse because I have a high-res monitor (QHD) - I thought Mac was better at this?

    Of course lots of people are off FB these days.

    It's like CUK, but with fewer extreme views and more contractors.
