Facebook has introduced 1500 diverse emojis including icons for working women to represent professional women.
Facebook says it’s introducing the first female police officer, runner, pedestrian, surfer and swimmer on any platform.
The 1,500 new designs include dozens of gender-agnostic and multi-coloured options. You can now select different skin tones for the icons before hitting enter.
“We’re diversifying the genders to create a more balanced mix that’s more representative of our world,” the company said in a statement. “Now, using Messenger emojis, you’ll see a female police officer, runner, pedestrian, surfer and swimmer for the very first time, and we’ll keep rolling these out.”
Several have already seen this change on their facebook and they love it!
