Instagram enables users to use gender pronouns preferred

Instagram has started letting expand profiles of English-language users to show new gender pronouns they want to use in conversation.

The photo-centered social network is the first internet service to extend to people of alternate gender roles beyond basic references to him or her.

"Add your profile to pronouns," said Instagram in a tweet.

"In a few countries, the latest field with plans for more is available."

According to the AFP option in the United States, Instagram users may choose to reveal their pronoun choices publicly only to friends at the service.

Pronouns included their and non-binary 'co' and 'ze' and others on the University of California information centre list in Davis.

The Facebook-owned services said in response to an AFP inquiry "We are giving users more tools to express themselves on Instagram."

"The sharing of pronouns was widely accepted by our society and we hope that the adoption can be more normalized with this feature."

Instagram said that it consulted pronoun alternatives for advocacy groups.

According to Instagram, work is carried out to extend to other languages globally, adding Instagram profiles in English.
