Taking after its digital peers, Facebook will no longer be asking you what your political views, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, or addresses are. 

Instead, it will be adding a bio where people can freely express themselves and add the information they want to share.

“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.”
