Facebook streamlines the settings page on mobile

Facebook streamlines the settings page on mobile a new redesign that will be rolled out from Wednesday. Visually, the new layout looks much less cluttered, and individual settings have no descriptions, meaning you see more on the page at once.

Facebook has also changed the organization of the institutions themselves. The company has reduced and renamed the number of categories for institutions, according to a blog post, so now you see six categories of settings: Account, Preferences, Audience & Visibility, Permissions, Your Data, and Community Standards & Legal Policies. Some settings have also been moved to related settings, Facebook says.

You can see the new look on Android, iOS, mobile web and Facebook Lite. You may already have the redesign – I just checked the Facebook app on my iPhone 12 Mini and it loaded. It was also present for me on the mobile web.
