After launching a dark mode for its desktop interface, Facebook confirms it is testing a dark mode for its mobile apps as well. As first noted by SocialMedia Today, Facebook has made the dark mode available to a very small percentage of people globally, a spokesperson told The Verge in an email Sunday. The mobile version of the dark mode Facebook introduced last month for desktop is “meant to cut down on glare,” particularly in low-light environments, the spokesperson said. There’s no timeline yet for when the dark mode will be available to all mobile users, however.
Pressure on Facebook to toughen its content moderation practices increased in late May when Twitter tagged a post by President Donald Trump that appeared to advocate violent action against protesters, saying that it glorified violence.
When Facebook resisted calls to take similar action, a number of the company’s longtime staffers wrote an open letter to CEO Mark Zuckerberg, calling the company’s refusal to fact-check or label political speech “cowardly.” Employees later staged a virtual walkout to demand stronger action against objectionable content.

Facebook New VIP Featured Photo

As the Myanmar military continued a deadly crackdown on dissidents, photos circulated in Facebook posts alongside a claim they show members of an ethnic armed group seizing a town. The claim is false: the photos have circulated online in various news reports since at least 2011.
The photos were posted here on May 31, 2022. The post was shared more than 1,200 times.
“This is what we called the battle of seizing the town. KIA soldiers took up positions in Kamaing,” the Burmese-language caption reads, referring to a town in northern Myanmar.
The Kachin Independence Army (KIA) is an ethnic armed group in Myanmar.
Rebels have stepped up attacks on the military after February’s coup, which ousted civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi and triggered mass uprisings.
More than 800 people have been killed by security forces in a crackdown that has left the country in turmoil.
The same photos were shared here, here, here, here, and here, alongside a similar claim.
However, the claim is false.
A reverse image search on Google found the first photo actually shows this image published by Invisible Photographer Asia-IPA on March 26, 2014.
The photo’s caption reads: “Soldiers of Kachin Independence Army (KIA) patrol around the town in the evening. Recent fight between Myanmar government and KIA at the Mansi area awakes Laiza to stay alert.”
The photo was featured in a series of images called “Burma’s Hidden War” by Yangon-based photojournalist Htoo Tay Zar.
It documents the ongoing conflict between the Myanmar military and the KIA.
The photo can also be found on Htoo Tay Zar’s website.
Below is a screenshot comparison of the photo in the misleading Facebook photo (L) and IPA’s photo (R).
Another reverse image search found the second photo was published in a report by Myanmar news outlet Irrawaddy here on October 17, 2011.
“Burmese Army Mounts Multi-front Offensive Against KIA,” the headline reads.
The photo’s caption reads: “KIA troops leave Laiza for the front line (Photo: Jinghpaw Kasa Blog)”.
The photo was shared in the Jinghpaw Kasa Blog, which describes itself as pro-KIA. It was published in this post on October 7, 2011.
