Facebook recently made a minor change in its logo that was designed back in 2005 and has remained the same since then.
It was high time for Facebook to make a logo move especially following Google’s decision to change its second letter g.
Facebook went ahead with a fastidious change in its logo. Curious to know what the change is?
First have a look at the pictures below and see if you can actually spot the difference:
If you are still left in confusion then the reason is that we hardly see the full word Facebook nowadays. Let us spill the beans and make it obvious to you, the tech in the new logo is bit slimmer and sleeker than the older one that had thicker and more block-shaped letter. The noticeable difference lies in the letter “a”. The only letter that remains unchanged is the signature ‘f’ which is recognizable on the social network

The only letter that remains unchanged is the signature ‘f’ which is recognizable on the social network.
Facebook’s creative director, Josh Higgins talked about the new logo saying the company set out to “modernize” Facebook’s logo and make it feel “more friendly and approachable.”
Furthermore, Higgins said, “We worked with Eric Olson — whose typeface Klavika was used in the original logo — and developed a custom typeface to reflect where we are now and where we are headed.”
