Facebook loses blue and is graphically renewed (and not only)
"There are tens of millions of active groups on Facebook.When people find the right way, they often make it the most significant part of using Facebook.And today, more than 400 million people on Facebook belong to a group that is important for them. " Zuckerberg explained "This is why we are developing a new design for Facebook that is simpler and more focused on communities. We are also introducing new tools to help users discover and interact with groups of people who share the same interests."
