The male and female characters are two symbols you can add to your Facebook name. Perhaps they would come in handy if you have a name like Chris that could be for either a man or a woman. When someone gets married, you can display the two symbols together to commemorate the new union. You could also use them to announce the beginning of any romantic relationship.
Here are the male and female symbols for Facebook. All you have to do to use them is copy and paste them into your status window.
Male and Female Symbols for Facebook
Male Facebook Symbol
The symbol for male is a circle that looks like it has an arrow coming out of it. Some say the arrow represents that man is the hunter, using a bow and arrows to hunt for food in prehistoric times. Another way to display the male symbol is by holding down the alt key while typing 267.
Female Facebook Symbol
The female symbol looks like a stick person that is missing its legs. It’s supposed to represent calmness and inner beauty. You can get the female symbol by typing 268 while holding down the alt key.
You can use either one of these anywhere you can type text on Facebook. In fact, you can use them anywhere you can type text on any site, even Twitter. How you use them is only limited by your imagination. If you know of any other cool Facebook symbols, tell us about them by leaving a comment.
