When signing up for a Facebook account, you’re prompted to fill out basic profile information. These details include name, email address, and gender. Gender options on Facebook used to be limited to ‘male and female’.
In the current world, there are different genders that a person can identify with. Fortunately, Facebook allows its users to change their gender very quickly. It offers dozens of options to edit your current gender or add a new one. Here’s how to change gender on Facebook.
