And now, Facebook intends to make it the default desktop design. As a result, users have no choice but to switch to a new desktop design sometime next month.

“We've made improvements to the new and we're excited for everyone to experience the new look. Before we make the classic Facebook unavailable in September, we hope that you'll let us know how we can continue to make Facebook better for everyone.”
