    Any Religious and Political Views Shared on Your Facebook Profile Will Be Removed

    Published on

    Facebook will never again be the same as the profile police are on the way.

    According to TechCrunch, Facebook is modifying the details users can provide in their profile starting on December 1.

    Tech enthusiast Matt Navarra was the first to discover the change.

    The revelation was then confirmed by a Facebook spokesman in a statement to TechCrunch.

    The representative explained, “As part of our efforts to make Facebook easier to navigate and use, we’re removing a handful of profile fields: Interested In, Religious Views, Political Views, and Address.”

    According to Tech Crunch, the “Interested In” column essentially served as a user’s sexual orientation indicator.

    “We’re sending notifications to people who have these fields filled out, letting them know these fields will be removed. This change doesn’t affect anyone’s ability to share this information about themselves elsewhere on Facebook.” according to a Facebook statement.

    According to an article about the change on EndGadget, Facebook is merely keeping up with the times.

    “It may reflect changing attitudes toward privacy, however. Facebook included these sections in the early days of social networking, when users more readily shared their more sensitive details (MySpace, anyone?),” according to the paper.

    “Now, however, privacy is a major concern— Meta itself has been more interested in privacy in recent years, focusing on private chats and greater security. People may be less inclined to share info on profiles in an era when online stalking and harassment are all too common,” the report suggested.

    According to Andrew Hutchinson’s article on Social Media Today, when the new profile regulation goes into effect, users won’t notice any significant changes.

    “In essence, Meta no longer has any need for you to share this info on your profile, and each of these elements could also lead to discrimination and harm simply by being present. So it’s probably better to remove them – but the overall impact on how the platform operates will be largely unchanged,” he wrote.

    Writing on Gizmodo, Thomas Germain said Facebook is trying to regain its zip.

    “Controversy aside, Facebook is also working to streamline a platform that’s filled with barely used features and cluttered, confusing interfaces. Facebook earned a poor reputation, not just for causing societal problems but because it’s just not cool anymore,” he wrote.

    “Users have been leaving the platform in droves, and even Instagram, Facebook’s younger and slightly hipper sibling, has seen its cache decline,” he wrote. CONTINUE READING…
