Why should you enable LinkedIn dark mode?
Is dark mode better for your eyes?
This is not a simple yes or no question. It very much depends on the individual and the purpose of use.
If you intend on using night mode mainly for reading, then yes. It is better for your eyes, undoubtedly. This is because the iris needs to open up, to grab more light.
The best readability you can get is by reading dark on light rather than light on dark. Dark mode can also improve the quality of your sleep, as it removes the blue light. In case, you enjoy taking your laptop or phone to bed, definitely use dark mode.
Something to consider when you’re deciding whether to turn dark mode on/off is your environment. Dark and light should go naturally with your surroundings.
If you’re at home at night, when everything’s dark, it’s probably better to use night mode. If you’re outside and it’s bright and shiny, the better decision would be to not use dark mode.
