Facebook will now look different on your phone and desktop.

At the company's annual F8 developer conference, Mark Zuckerberg unveiled a major redesign to Facebook's desktop and mobile versions. He also introduced a new circular Facebook logo with blue background.

The latest change to Facebook has already started to roll out to users in the US. The new design will be available worldwide in coming days.

With the latest update, Facebook users will see bigger icons for Stories on top followed by status update box. A more compact News Feed will appear next. On the left, you will get fewer shortcuts such as Events, Gaming, Memories, Help & Support among others. This section will also have Settings & Privacy. Under the see more drop down, you can access other Facebook features.

Facebook is also going to roll out the same white background theme to its mobile version.
