Facebook says: “The sidebar is sensitive to the amount of free space you have on your screen, so it only appears when there is enough space.

The navigation bar, located at the bottom of the Facebook app on iOS and at the top in Android, will be customizable, allowing users to replace some icons with the features they use most.
