Facebook has made a change to how its news feed is displayed on its iOS mobile app.
Users disagree about the decision to swap the visibility of certain features to give content more real estate on the screen.

With the new Facebook app update, the top and bottom menus disappear once the user starts scrolling through their news feed. iPhone users with the update will now need to scroll up to see the tabs again.
While the features will generally be reflected on both iPhone and Andriod, it’s unclear if Android users are currently experiencing the same update.
Social media consultant Matt Navara reported the change on Twitter Tuesday, writing, “Facebook has made an interesting change to their iOS app.”
“I’ve had this for about a week! I really like it, eliminates the clutter and really lets you focus on the feed,” wrote one user.
But not everyone is happy about the change.
“At first I thought it was a problem so I kept closing the app, but then I realized it was their new ‘full screen’ experience… I’m so used to constantly tapping the menu options at the bottom! ” wrote one user.
“I got this last week, not sure if I’m a fan,” wrote another.
“Super annoying having to scroll back up a bit so I can tap the icons below,” wrote another.
