Facebook worked with typographer Eric Olson of Process Type Foundry, who designed the original Facebook typeface (Klavika) to create a unique, updated version.

Josh Higgins, the Creative Director for Facebook, explained to Brand New: "Now that we are established, we set out to modernize the logo to make it feel more friendly and approachable. While we explored many directions, ultimately we decided that we only needed an update, and not a full redesign."

Facebook has added 13 million users in six months to take its userbase to 125 million in India, its second-biggest market globally.

The US-based firm, which had 112 million users in India as of December last year, also launched a 2G-friendly mobile app 'Facebook Lite' here to cater users with slow internet connectivity.

Globally, it has 1.44 billion monthly active users as of March 31, 2015 with the US as its biggest market.

"In India, Facebook has 125 million average users (MAU), while the number of mobile MAUs stands at 114 million. On a daily basis, 59 million users in India are accessing Facebook and 53 million are accessing us from their mobile phones," Facebook Head of Products (Facebook Lite) Vijay Shankar said.
