Facebook has made a recent change to their friends icon – one they say is small, but necessary.
You may have not noticed, but the new icon now features the woman in front of the man.
Caitlin Winner, a designer at Facebook says, “It didn’t seem fair, let alone accurate, that all friend requests should be represented by a man, so I drew a silhouette for cases where a gendered icon was inappropriate”.
She also goes on to note the slight modernization of the logo. The male & female both received minor changes.
The girl looks less like a helmet head, while the man receives a combover instead of a spikey hair-do. :-P
Facebook has also just announced new features that will let you bump up content in your news feed.
More Facebook updates on the way.
