Facebook introduces gender options

LAST UPDATED // Friday, 14 February 2014 14:22 Written by // Sabine Brix

Facebook has introduced a new option of gender selection for people within the LGBT community.

The new initiative has been spearheaded by the Facebook Diversity program and now allows Facebook users to custom select their gender, whereby previously users only had the option to select male or female.

The custom option also allows users to determine whether or not their gender change appears online and with whom they share information concerning their gender.

A list of leading LGBT advocacy organisations including GLAAD have assisted Facebook in developing the extensive list of gender identities that people use to describe themselves.

Here is the link to the new options. https://www.facebook.com/help/276177272409629
