Choose Your Exact Gender On Facebook

Posted on February 15, 2014 ยท Posted in Social Media

It has been confirmed earlier this week that Facebook has implemented the ability for its users to choose the gender that best fits them rather than only including the traditional choice of being male or female.

This decision was done after Facebook worked closely with LGBT activist groups to make sure they met everyone’s need and didn’t exclude important choices. For now this feature will only be available in the US, but no doubt will be expanded to the UK and other countries in the not to distant future.

This update also allows users to define the pronoun they’d like to be referred to as on Facebook: male (he/his), female (she/her) or neutral (they/their). This is a major step forward to everyone becoming equal no mater their gender choice.
