Facebook Goes Dark Mode

Facebook Goes Dark Mode


Facebook has introduced Dark mode; it was announced on May 8th. It’s available on the desktop web browser version of Facebook. Probably the biggest change to the way Facebook looks in its 16 years of being online.

What is Dark mode?

Dark mode is a visual theme where most of your screen is a dark colour (usually black) with the text being a brighter colour (usually white). Think of it as the opposite of how most screens display information as black text on a white background. The black text on a white background is similar to how books and newspapers are printed. But when you are looking at a screen for long periods of time it’s easier on your eyes to have the majority of the screen dark and only have the text be the part that is emitting light. It’s similar to the way that the old console like MS-DOS or a shell like on Linux operates.

Dark mode is great if you get sore eyes or headaches from looking at screens.

Facebook said, “Enjoy lower brightness, alongside contrast and vibrancy, with dark mode. It minimizes screen glare for use in low light, wherever you are”.

If you are running Android 10 you can change Android to dark mode in settings and then you can have the Facebook mobile app run in dark mode.

History of Dark Mode

Dark mode is not a modern invention. Originally computers had character-based user interfaces, not graphical ones, and the majority of them were light text on dark backgrounds. Some people may remember in the 1980s, the green CRT screens (or Amber ones) of the Apple ][ computers, Microbees and IBM PCs. The Dick Smith VZ-200 had an undocumented dark mode if you knew how to turn it on. The Workbench of the Commodore Amiga also used a dark mode theme by default, although the background was blue and it wasn’t very dark blue, the text was white.

After using dark themes for many years software makers moved over to light themes. It looked new and fresh. Now after over 35 years of light mode, we are seeing a trend back to dark mode. Will it last 35 years before we all go back to light mode? Probably not.

Dark mode theme has been available on software development tools for many years. Darcula theme on the Android Studio IDE and Microsoft Visual Studio Code editor are good examples. Lately, it has become a trend in web and app development. Android version 10 has a dark mode setting to affect all apps that support that theme. Google announced in May 2020 that it would be rolling out a dark mode for the Google search app across Android and IOS devices within a week. Have a look in the More | Settings area for Theme to give it a try when it’s available.

How to turn on Facebook Dark Mode for desktop web browser version?

Facebook is rolling out a new desktop web browser version. Not everyone has it yet as it is being introduced in stages. When they give you the new version, sometime soon, you’ll be able to turn dark mode on by clicking on your profile picture in the top/right of the screen and turn on the button for dark mode.

Using dark mode can save power and conserve battery life if you are using a screen where individual pixels emit light. Like in an OLED display. But, if you use an LCD screen where the light is emitted from the backplane and not by individual pixels then there is no real advantage for your battery life. It’s just easier on your eyes and looks cool.

The applications are possibly the hugest reason of why iPhone users are addicted and glued completely to their mobile devices. Besides being the branch of entertainment for these people, the applications are now even usable for business purposes. Due to the massive evolution of the significance of internet, the iPhone plays a great role in keeping you connected to the cyber world.

A business owner can boost up the brand’s image using these applications for free! Besides it requires no additional fee and you can do it anytime, anywhere.

Some Tactics to Get Free Tweet Apps

The first time I have used Twitter, I was overpowered because of the quantity of apps available, and whereas sometimes I still feel this way, it make me less headaches when I recognized that the main activity of Twitter can be solved with two users. One to handle auto-tweets, auto-DMs, all the automatic operations to raise an account quickly, for this I use Twitter Adder (reviewed on my blog). Another main client of Twitter is used to solve the personal interactions with the community, the answers, the retweets, the non-automated DMs. If you don’t use the free software Tweet Deck for this, may be you are missing the chance to throw out many headaches. In this article, I will give you the explaination about Tweet Decks features refering to the previous customer I used instead, and discussing a couple of strategies I’ve been using efficiently to achieve targeted followers for my E-marketing campaigns.

Tweet Deck vs. my previous client Twirl


I used Twirl before I found Tweet Deck, both are free, both have similar fundamental features, but right from the get-go it was clear that Tweet Deck was a lot better.


Firstly, look at how much better the appearance of Tweet Deck is. You can view multiple columns at once, not just showing the basics, your DMs and mentions, but for the time-line of hashtags, or lists you’ve created.


The biggest weakness of Twirl by comparison is that you can’t select your categories. Two such categories show the time-line for your friends or followers, but this is pretty redundant for most marketers because of how many followers and friends get added. Most of us aren’t going to randomly browse through thousands upon thousands of tweets. This is where Tweet Deck shines, because you can view the time-line of your lists.

‘Worldcup where buy merchandise -www -com -http -https’


Another useful tactic that works for Tweet Deck and not Twirl is loading hashtag groups, and this opens up a whole new level of utility for clients like this. One use of this is to scan trending groups for a particular field relevant to your marketing. So for example, people affiliate marketing #Worldcup merchandise were using this tactic recently to tap into large quantities of potential buyers. The real genius of the client is that you can select combinations of hashtag groups and words. So that marketer could have had a column for ‘#Worldcup where buy merchandise -www -com -http -https’. By removing the posts with links in, a vast proportion of the competition is removed, and that marketer can then @ people individually to suggest where to buy products.


This can be quite time consuming, and I’m told of products like Tweetomatic profiteer that will automate the process of @mentions to potential buyers. I’m also told of a lot of problems with this software.


Following back


Whether or not to follow back is a bit of a grey area, a personal preference. If you do this, you can add ‘I followback’ to your bio, encouraging people to follow you, and adding to the number of searches in Twitter directories such as Twello that find your profile.


If you follow back, you can use Tweet Deck to add groups such as #followback and #ifollowback to. People that follow back offer a great way to build your numbers fast.


Some marketers will frown on this because the users aren’t targeted to a particular niche, and I accept this, which is why wether or not you try this should depend on the type of accounts you use. If the information has general appeal to social media users, you might find some customers this way.


If you’re not happy with Tweet Deck, it’s a lot more configurable than Twirl, special mention has to go to the specific set up options for using your Twitter API. Remember that the more columns you use, the more API you use up, so if like me, you like to leave 7 or 8 columns open, reduce these quantities here at the cost of slightly slower updates.




It really is amazing what you can get for free, Tweet Deck can do everything that Twirl can do and a lot more. The most important feature of all is the ability to combine hashtag group and individual word searches, and if you can harness this properly, you’ll be laughing all the way to the bank.


If you want to read more about Twitter strategies, check out my blog below.

I intend to have articles on all parts of the Twitter functionality soon, hashtags, direct messages etc…I’m also adding Twitter app reviews. I update that blog daily so keep it in mind.


I’d love to discuss ideas with people, find me on Twitter:


Hope you’ve enjoying the read!

Free vs. Paid: The Battle of the Apps

Sign up to post in the forum. It’s Free.

The smart phone revolution is one of the biggest technological breakthroughs since the wide spread adoption of the internet in the 1990’s. The utility of the internet has changed dramatically since mobile phones began connecting to the web as smart phones continue to look more and more like an alternative to PCs rather than an addition. The entry of information technology giants like Apple and Google into the smart phone business reveals the potentiality of the business. The apps industry as an explosive business force is by now an old story, but just to put it in perspective, we’re probably not far from seeing the profit from selling smart phone apps actually eclipses the profits from selling the handsets themselves. The smart phone application business has also changed the way companies get their products and brand name out by allowing a blend of free and paid for apps. Approximately 25% of all Apple apps are downloadable free to the users, including a couple of big name, popular social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and instant messengers Windows Live and Skype. Google Android Market offers a whopping 57% of the apps for free. Investigative market experts like Distimo have provided a plausible explanation for the large spread between Google and Apple – only developers in a fraction of the countries where Android is available can distribute paid apps on the platform. However, experts believe the huge gap will close as the Android market matures. The marketing research specialists of the juggernaut app industry have been wailing about the explosive growth of the business. It is estimated that the revenues from the American smart phone paid-for apps market may exceed $ 4 billion by 2013, with those estimations being admittedly modest. The list and categories of applications for these smart phones is virtually endless with Apple having a reported 150,000 total apps available from the App Store. Not surprising, considering the casual and leisure nature of those who use smart phones, games is topping the chart of most downloads, followed by books, entertainment and social networking. At the top of the paid download social networking charts, you’ll find GTX Corp’s GPS Tracking Apps within the top ten consistently. Combined with the limited free version which is sponsored through advertising, the GPS Tracking Apps have been downloaded over 650,000 in 91 countries. As more and more in demand and usable technology continues to be branded and packaged in app form and sold across market platforms, the line that defines popularity between the free and paid for app becomes increasingly blurred. On one end you have a GPS Tracking App for $ 3.99 that can be a sincerely useful tool in locating and tracking your family and friends. On the other hand, the entertainment app segment, what I would closely refer to as the “people actually want this? Segment”, is holding steady. This week, it’s being reported that Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino has an app out that features a “GTL finder” – a GPS enabled program that locates a gym, a tanning bed, and laundry locations around you – for $ 4.99. The conclusion? Free apps paved the way for demand and interest from users in the app market, but in the end, whether it’s an app that serves as a handy and easy way to locate friends and family in a moment or an app that allows you to overdose on Jersey Shore-mania, the paid-for apps will forever dominate and the companies that positioned themselves early on and now have numerous apps in the market with a pipeline of more to come will be at the forefront of what many operators are calling the next “Gold Rush!”
