Facebook in U.S. will have new gender identity
Posted On 13 Feb 2014
For the first time Facebook will enable an option to allow users of the social network to identify with a different gender to male and female.
Last Wednesday, the social network announced that the basic user profile for members in the U.S. now includes a customizable category between gender types to choose from.
Among the options to elect are “transgender”, “intersex” and “fluid”, among others 10 types of gender identifications.
Facebook said that worked with a large group of organizations that advocate for the rights of gay and transgender people to provide ID options.
