Facebook Rolls Out Image Viewer Redesign

We’ve got tipster consensus on the fact that Facebook has started to roll out a more elegant Lightbox-like dark background version of its Image Viewer or what it is now calling Facebook PhotoTheater.

Perhaps this broader rollout is the first sign of the general upcoming Facebook redesign we reported on before the press event earlier this week?

Apparently the more streamlined feature does hide most Facebook Image Viewer ads except for a single one in the bottom right corner, which functions as a proper ad “Why didn’t you like it?” survey et al.

In any case, screen caps of what viewing photos on Facebook will soon look like, above and below.
