For months we know that Facebook, like the vast majority of applications and platforms, was worked in a dark mode both for mobile apps and the web version.
In F8 2019, Facebook I promised that a service redesign would arrive, and it seems that the changes are beginning to reach some users. If we do a search on social networks, we will check that some people can already activate the dark mode:

Remember Twitter a lot
And we say "some users", because At the moment it is a beta version. That means we will have to wait for this test phase to end so that Facebook decides to activate it for all users.
Curiously, Facebook's new design reminds a lot of Twitter, something we can check in the screenshots shared by @teepusahab:

One of the important changes is that if you leave the social network and open it again in a few days, you will find yourself at the same point you left it (functionality that takes years in Twitter customers).
Larger typeface and a renewed navigation menu
In addition to the dark mode, we can verify that the typeface used is larger, and have changed the navigation mens to make it easier to access the different areas of the platform.
As we can see in the capture, users who have been able to activate it They have received an invitation informing them that they can already try it. It should be noted that, being a test, the design is likely to change when it arrives officially.
The dark mode of Facebook begins to reach some users, with a new design that reminds a lot of Twitter
