Facebook’s notification icon is one of the most clicked-on parts of the screen — and now it has a new little aesthetic twist.

As first pointed out to Inside Facebook by Matteo Gamba and Ugur Samut, CMO of Medigo, the location of the globe logo is now localized to the user’s location. U.S. users see North and South Americas in the logo, while users in other parts of the world will see their area.

Facebook has confirmed to Inside Facebook that this is a new feature.
