Facebook is removing some information fields from profiles

Facebook has been informing users that it will remove four information fields from profiles starting next month. These fields include Religious Views, Political Views, Address, and an “Area of Interest” field indicating the user’s sexual orientation. This change will take effect on December 1st.

A spokesperson told

“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,” the spokesperson said in a statement. “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.”

Facebook’s decision to remove these specific profile fields is part of an effort to optimize the platform, which currently consists of some somewhat outdated features. It is worth noting that the information fields that Facebook chooses to remove are not offered by other major social networks.

Platforms such as Instagram and TikTok have simple bios that allow users to share a little bit about themselves without going into specific details such as political or religious views. While some may have been interested in it, users may no longer want to share additional details about themselves online as the invasion of privacy has been revealed.
