You may have noticed a small but symbolic change to the friend request icon on your Facebook page.
The icon has been altered so the female figure is in front of the male one, after Facebook designer Caitlin Winner noticed that previously "the woman was quite literally in the shadow of the man".
"I assumed no ill intentions, just a lack of consideration but as a lady with two robust shoulders, the chip offended me," Winner said.
Having filled in the shoulder chip, Winner also gave the female icon a "more modern" bob haircut and smoothed out the male icon's hair.
Winner also altered the "groups" icon, so the woman no longer appeared "in the back left behind the larger centered man".
