What is Facebook Dark Mode?

Dark mode's most well-known and scientific benefit is that it reduces power consumption on smartphones with OLED or AMOLED screens. Each pixel on an OLED panel is individually illuminated. When the background is white, all the pixels are switched on and the display consumes more power. The Facebook Black Mode is a view that replaces the white interface with a dark background, which some people find easier to read.
